Healthy Cooking Tip
While this recipe is designed to serve four, it could easily be doubled for a larger group — or so that you have “planned-overs,” which you can serve as is or use in a salad.
FACTOID:A winter squash like butternut contains folate, which the body needs to break down homocysteine, a toxic amino acid that damages blood vessel walls. High levels are associated with increased risk for heart attack and stroke, therefore, experts recommend a high folate diet.
Round Out the Meal
Spread roasted garlic on whole-wheat baguette and serve with a frisée salad with lemon vinaigrette. For dessert, offer toasted angel food cake with sliced peaches.
