Micah clipped this recipe out of a Better Homes and Gardens magazine in April 2007.

This is the most delicious butternut squash dish I’ve ever eaten and it can be prepared vegetarian or vegan.

All Organic Ingredients are best

Extra Virgin Olive Oil to coat pan

1 1-2 lb. Butternut Squash, peeled, seeded, and cut in 3/4 to 1-inch cubes

8 oz. button or cremini mushrooms (we used shiitake) halved (3 cups)

1 large onion, cut into thin wedges

1 Tbsp. snipped fresh or dried rosemary or oregano, crushed

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

8 oz organic brown rice (1 cup)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup walnuts, raw or toasted

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425F.  Coat a 15x10x1-inch baking pan (we recommend glass) with olive oil.  Place squash pieces in pan.  Sprinkle with black pepper.  Cover; bake 10 minutes.  Uncover; add mushrooms, onion, rosemary, and olive oil; toss.  Roast, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender and lightly browned, stirring once or twice.

2. Meanwhile, cook brown rice according to package directions.
(Optional: Add 1/2 cup of organic chicken broth to cooked rice, to taste)

3. Add roasted vegetables and walnuts to brown rice; stir gently to combine.  Sprinkle each serving with feta cheese.

Makes 4 Servings

Enjoy!

    Delicious! The feta is a must for flavor, but we loved this. Thank you Chris.

    I made this for my family last night and it was really enjoyed. Even my 5 and 2 year olds said it was really good.
    Thanks for the recipes, and please keep them coming.

    Thank you so much for your receipes. I HAD(Love that word) Inflammatory Breast Cancer stage 3. Had a PET scan and I’m clean as of last week! :) I’ve changed my diet to eating all organic and healthy thru all this and it was getting very boring. What a difference spices and good recipes can make! I’m much happier. Thanks so much.

    i would substitute olive oil with coconut oil, as apparently olive oil becomes toxic over 350 degrees..
