What’s Cooking This Weekend
Cooler weather is here and the leaves in northern part of the country are starting to turn. The last of the summer harvest is at the green markets which means that pumpkins and squash are plentiful. My daughter like her slow cooker which frees up time for other activities, like leaf watching.
Douse squash in lots of oil and let it slow-roast to golden-deliciousness in this hands-off dish.
Don’t have an acorn squash for this chicken thighs recipe? Use butternut. Not into mustard greens? Use kale, Swiss chard, or spinach.
Between the kale, the rice, and the squash, it’s chock-full of fiber, antioxidants, and minerals. And the nutty, salty Pecorino Romano cheese gives it a quiet punch.
This steak, with lentils, squash, pesto, almonds, and marinated feta, will be unlike anything you’ve ever tried before. In a good way.
Why wouldn’t you throw some veggies around your bird while it roasts? You’ve got a hot pan that’s about to be full of sizzling schmaltz just begging to bathe a mosaic of squash and onions with tons of chicken-y flavor.
Few side dishes are better on a cool fall evening than roasted acorn squash sweetened with just a little honey and made even mellower with nutmeg and fresh sage leaves.
