Roasted Butternut Squash, Hashed Brussels Sprouts, and Sauteed Cremini

Roasted Butternut Squash, Hashed Brussels Sprouts, and Sauteed Cremini Mushrooms

Dinner tonight consisted of roasted butternut squash, sauteed cremini mushrooms, and hashed brussels sprouts with poppy seeds and lemon. The brussels sprouts came from Orngette and they were great. I added a touch more salt than she calls for, but other than that I followed her recipe exactly.

The squash is simply roasted with some olive oil, cinnamon, smoked paprika, salt, pepper and sugar. I sliced it diagonally before baking, letting the spiced olive oil seep down into the cuts.

They were baked at 350º until soft, then held in a 200º oven until I was ready to plate. The sugar creates a nice sweet crunch, and the slices make it cook a bit faster.

The mushrooms were cooked in olive oil, salt, oregano and thyme over high heat. They were finished with a splash white wine (since I already had it open for the sprouts), and a drizzle of balsamic and some cracked black pepper.

Everything went over well, but Stewart said that he prefers my other sprout recipe over this one. Since I’m an equal opportunity sprout lover, I’ll take ‘em any way I get ‘em.

    hi lolo,
    the hashed brussels sound a lot like a delicious recipe my mom and i made for txgiving two years ago from cooking light. everything is the same, but the recipe we had called for no wine. i bet it was really great.
