You can make dishes that are tasty, healthy, and don’t take all day. Or even the whole length of your favorite TV show. Below, find a seven-ingredient recipe that gives vitamin-rich offerings like squash and carrots just the right flavor while maintaining their nutritional value.
Maple Roasted Butternut Squash and Carrots
1 butternut squash
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel and chop carrots and squash into one-inch pieces. Remove seeds from the squash as well. Toss with olive oil and maple syrup and then place on a large baking sheet. Season with the nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. Roast for 20 minutes and turn. Roast for another 10-20 minutes until tender and brown around the edges.
The outcome will be colorful, a little sweet, and contain all the nutrients from these two hearty vegetables. For more details on what foods are worth eating and ways to make them yummy, give us a call at 717-840-9885 or click on the button below to make an appointment.
