Let Them Eat Cake – I'm Eating Veggies

Fall is here! The farmer's markets are full of every kind of squash, pumpkin and root vegetable! I love them all! I've been a big fan of these delicious and healthy vegetables for quite some time. Some folks I've been connecting with through facebook have not even tried a spaghetti squash or butternut squash! Here is what I propose to you this week! Head to your local produce stand or farmer's market and get 2 or 3 new squash that you have never tried before. Chop them into quarters, take out the seeds and brush a little olive oil on them. Turn them face down on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 ° F for about 30 minutes or until tender with a fork. You can also add some large chopped purple onion, sweet potatoes, sugar pumpkin, beets. Once they are tender, remove them and keep in your fridge. You can easily reheat them for lunch, dinner or a snack. There are lots of great varieties out there!

You can also take the fully cooked squash off the skin and blend it with some plain Greek-style yogurt, vegetable broth and make into a soup with a little sage, sea salt and black pepper. There are endless ideas you can do with these vegetables!
