Roasted Carrots and Butternut Squash
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Complexity: easy

Roasted Carrots and Butternut Squash

This recipe was inspired by a beautiful bunch of carrots from the farmers market and a lovely butternut squash on my counter.  I decided to slice them into sticks and they were the perfect side to our grilled steak dinner.

 

 

**How to cut and peel a butternut squash:  Start by grabbing a sharp knife and sharp vegetable peeler.  First remove the ends by using a shark knife and placing the squash on a work board on the side.

Place the squash on its side and use the vegetable peeler by making long strokes along the squash.

 

To easily work with the squash, cut it in half.  I like to cut where the neck of the squash ends.

 

Cut the body (bigger end) in half and use a spoon the scrape out the seeds.

 

Now you can easily cut into strips, chop or use other ways to follow this recipe.

Roasted Cipollini Onions
  • Time: 45 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Roasted Cipollini Onions

Cipollini's are a staple in Italian homes.  We mostly had them during the holidays but they are great with grilled steak or even burgers.  They become sweet and tender and adding the balsamic vinegar brings out so much flavor.  These little guys can be very addictive! 

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking.

**Cindy's Tip! If you slice off the root end of the cipollini onion with a sharp paring knife before boiling, then it will be much easier to peel. **
