This salted maple squash with devices is a fancy-feeling main dish with durable veggies. Simply a much better variation of a daily dinner at our home. I remain in the middle of some independent food-related jobs so there are scraps and halves of all sort of vegetables/herbs in the refrigerator today.

The dinnertime relocation recently is a roasted veggie plus some grain with a slaw-style salad with seasonal add-ins. The glazed salted maple squash is so scrumptious and sticky and remarkable by itself however. I dress the entire thing with a fresh turmeric and clementine dressing. Good and light, sweet, and a quite shade of yellow. My very first little dog crate of the citrus is delightfully sweet, so I’m hoping that’s a sign of what’s to come.

Besides consuming them as treats, clementine juice in a dressing or sauce is so joyful and includes simply the ideal tang and sweet taste. Here, I make a cashew butter-based, a little velvety dressing– you might likewise utilize tahini! The creaminess is simply ideal with the sweet squash and cruciferous veggie flavours going on.

Some other bits: I have a gluten-free and vegan chocolate portion ginger cake on BAKED today and a Thanksgiving-appropriate dish for casserole in The Washington Post too. If you’re searching for more vacation motivation, I have all of my finest choices connected here.
