Stuffed vegetables. Forever the rage!

I recently had a revelation that I could likely eat stuffed squash for dinner every single night during the fall and winter months and never get tired of it.

Just think of all the combinations and permutations one can come up with to create so many different meals out of stuffed squash! 

For starters, there are many varieties of winter squash, in addition to all sorts of proteins, grains, legumes, fruit, vegetables, herbs, leafy greens, cheese, nuts, seeds and more!

So many possibilities!

There’s just so much pleasure to be had with stuffing winter squash with a variety of goofies if you ask me!

If I played favorites, delicata could quite possibly be my favorite squash!

When roasted with maple syrup and cinnamon, delicata squash is simply irresistible. Plus, it’s a great source of potassium and fiber, Vitamins B and C and beta-carotene.
