“Butternut” Forget to Eat Your Veggies!

Autumn is upon us and so are the fall and winter veggies that remind me of the warm cozy evenings by the fire.

Loaded with veggies!

I’d like to tell you a little secret…

Even when the nights are cold, we still have a ton of local produce for folks to enjoy!   Many farms are working hard right now on getting their winter veggies tended to.

Some veggies that we will find in season right now are:

  • Winter squash and pumpkins
  • Beets, carrots and turnips
  • Leeks
  • Kale, collards and other greens
  • Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower

Here at Goodness Grows we have lots of butternut squash, which I use for this hearty recipe:

Butternut Homefries
Great for Breakfast!

Butternut Homefries

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion coarsely chopped
  • 1 large butternut squash peeled and cubed
  • minced cayenne pepper to taste (can be substituted with sweet red peppers)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in the skillet and then add rosemary, onion, squash and pepper.   Saute for 15-20 minutes or until the squash is tender. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
