This is a lovely way to enjoy your butternut squash over the winter. The rich marriage of squash with that herb-infused brown butter makes for a hearty and flavorful meatless stuffed shell. The bacony-crisp of the sage leaves are reminiscent of makes for a perfect garnish, while the amount of cheese involved is entirely flexible (I’ve used nutritional yeast in place of the Parmesan in a pinch.) Roasting the squash before mashing really brings out the sweet and nutty flavor of the squash, a step not to be skipped for full-effect, though you can roast your squash up to 3 days ahead of time as needed.
Not sure what to do with that cabbage? Eggroll in a Bowl is a quick and flexible weeknight option, and when I say flexible, I mean FLEXIBLE! You can make this paleo, gluten free, vegetarian…. So grab your cabbage, carrots, and protein of your choosing, and the rest is up to you and your imagination. It’s also a healthy (and dare I say tastier) alternative to the deep fried crunchy version from your favorite takeout joint, so pull up some ingredients and make it your own!
