Local Foods Recipe: Root Veggies & Squashes

This is a super easy and healthy dish that can be totally made with local vegetables you can find at any farm stand or market and can be easily tweaked to your own tastes.

Select your favorite root vegetables and squashes for a colorful dish that goes well with meat, chicken, fish -- or without.

Peeled butternut squash
Other peeled squash (acorn, buttercup, etc)
Sweet Potatoes
Olive oil (or butter/margarine)
Salt & pepper

Oil and set aside a large casserole dish with olive oil.
Chunk vegetables and apple into a large mixing bowl. Toss (with oil or applesauce, if desired) to mix the vegetables. Pour into the casserole dish. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and bake at 350 for about 1 hour or until a fork slides easily through the vegetables.

Serve with brown rice, quinoa, cornbread, or other hearty grains for the perfect autumn meal.

For variation, add kielbasa or cooked sweet sausage to the mix.
