Butternut Squash Preserved in Oil

I was able to rescue about half a dozen butternut squash before the bugs destroyed the plants in my garden. We have been enjoying what have turned out to be some very tasty squash. While driving to Boston to help my daughter move, I listened to 6 hours of NPR. In Connecticut I discovered Food…

Butternut Squash Lasagna Roll Ups

Time to use another section of my giant crookneck squash. I roasted about 2/3 of the neck and since I only needed 2 1/2 cups of pulp, it was still too much , so I will need to find another use for the couple of extra cups of pulp. Since even just the plain roasted…

Minestrone for an Autumn Day

I went to one of our local farm stores and found this… It’s a crookneck squash, and it is gigantic! It is about the size of 3 or 4 butternut squashes! So you will likely be seeing this, or parts of it, a few times over the next few weeks. This recipe used just 1/2 of…

Pasta with Sweet-Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale

Thanks again to Highland Orchards for beautiful pesticide-free butternut squash and kale.  The inspiration for this dish came from The Splendid Table’s Sweet Roaster Butternut Squash and Greens Over Bow-Tie Pasta. I really like the sweetness that recipe brings to the roasted vegetables, but not the very creamy sauce.  So, I adjusted the ingredients and technique…

Butternut Squash Quiche

We learned the other day that roasted vegetables worked will in a strata, so I figured that butternut squash and some other roasted vegetables would work just as well in a quiche. I decided to keep with an orange theme and…

Roasted Vegetable Tart and Quiche

Two versions tonight – why?  I roasted a lot of vegetables and my pastry crust was not big enough, so I also pulled out a pre-made pie crust and made a quiche. Each was worth making individually, so I have included both. Some in the family preferred the quiche… Others the tart… Roasted Vegetable Filling…

Butternut Squash Chili with Corn

Time again to use one of the butternut squash from my garden (somehow the crate of squash does not seem to be getting smaller). I peeled it and cut it up to use in a healthy chili. I love chili, all types of chili.  Red chilis, white chilis, black bean chilis, leftover turkey chili, Cincinnati chili.  Chili…

Eggplant and Butternut Squash Tagine with Chickpeas and Raisins

We attended the Delaware Wine and Beer Festival last week and, aside from some new beverages, we discovered a new farm – Suzuki Farms in Delmar, Delaware.  They specialize in Japanese vegetables. We picked up some eggplants and some delicious salad dressing that his wife made. I used a could of the eggplants with a…
