Squash is versatile, packed with nutrients, and adds a burst of color to any dish. Our featured recipe, 10 Takes On Seasonal Squash offers ten creative ways to prepare squash, from roasted butternut squash soup to spaghetti squash carbonara. For our favorite, the roasted delicata squash rings, preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the squash into rings, remove the seeds, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the squash rings with a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the squash is tender and lightly browned. Serve hot with a sprinkle of chopped parsley or grated parmesan cheese.
Cauliflower “Mock” Risotto with Spring Vegetables is a low-carb, grain-free alternative to traditional risotto. For this recipe, you’ll need one large head of cauliflower, diced into small pieces, and one cup of vegetable broth. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat, add minced garlic, diced onion, and sauté for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add cauliflower and cook for another 3-4 minutes until it’s lightly browned. Add vegetable broth, cover the skillet, and let it cook for 10-15 minutes until the cauliflower is tender. Add your favorite spring vegetables like asparagus or peas, and stir. Cover and cook for another 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and finish with a sprinkle of chopped parsley or grated parmesan cheese.
Both of these recipes are quick, easy, and full of flavor. They are perfect for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion.
