Roasted Delicata Squash Salad Recipe

Roasted Delicata Squash Salad Recipe
I have Molly Watson to thank for the inspiration here. A while back she posted a recipe featuring a miso-harissa slathered roasted delicata squash. Quite frankly, a combination of ingredients that had never crossed my mind. Building on her idea, I decided to do a roasted squash salad of sorts. I used the pretty, scalloped-edged cross-cuts of the delicata squash, a few small potatoes, chopped kale, radishes, Marcona almonds - and her miso/harissa idea. I suspect you could do endless riffs on this depending on what you have on hand, or what is in season. Thank you Molly for the inspiration, lunch is on me next week ;)... - More Harissa Recipes - - More Delicata Squash Recipes - - More Salad Recipes - Preheat the oven to 400F / 200C degrees.

Kale & Shiitake Mushroom Stuffing Recipe Let’s get this Thanksgiving thing started, but first things first – do you call it stuffing or dressing? Obviously, based on the title here, you know where I stand. My humble opinion is that dressing is what goes on salad and stuffing is my favorite carb-loaded Thanksgiving side dish… of course my version here isn’t actually stuffed into anything. This year, instead of going crazy with stuffing made of cornbread or poblano peppers, I’m keeping things kind of classic. Cost of shiitake mushrooms aside (although you can totally sub them for any mushrooms), this is pretty easy to make and it also reheats really well. kale & shiitake mushroom stuffing Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8x12 or 9x13 casserole dish. To reheat, add a bit more stock and bake until warmed through and slightly crisp on top. If you make this, let us see! pictured: Staub Cast Iron 12 x 8 Roasting Pan

Roasted Winter Squash Salad Recipe I keep buying kabocha squash. Orange ones. This is despite the fact that, orange or green, they're incredibly heavy. Now, before you jump to the conclusion that I'm a complainer, allow me to add this - the walk home from the farmers' market is best thought of as a summit attempt. My absolute favorite way to eat the orange kabocha is this: roast fat wedges to within an inch of their life at 425F / 220C. When you've had enough of that, I encourage you to try this. This is a long way of saying, if you come across these guys at the market, bring one home with you. Book signing: Just a quick reminder that I'll be at the Remodelista Holiday Market in Marin this Saturday 12/3 from 10-4. As I mentioned up above, I made this with orange kabocha squash, but I imagine it'd be nearly as good with acorn, delicata, or most other winter squash, really. If you haven't already roasted your squash, start there*. Toss the squash in a large bowl with about a third of the dressing. Serves 6. Print Recipe

Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Moussaka Does it feel like pumpkin has been all the rage a little bit more than usual this fall? It does to me – I’ve even seen complaints about the internet overdose of pumpkin: “Find a new darling ingredient!” and “What about cranberries, guys??” So, yes, I know some of you are over pumpkin. The first time I had moussaka I was in Budapest. I have never felt more out of place than I did in Budapest. Anyway, one night we decided to go out to a Greek restaurant near our apartment (we’d already had plenty of chicken paprikash).
