Thanksgiving Side Dishes and Appetizer Recipes
If you’re still looking for some last-minute easy recipes that aren’t loaded with calories but sure do have tons of flavor, try these! I’ve been so busy with life (and testing my pumpkin-oat-cranberry scone recipe) that it took me until today to realize I’m running behind on posting Thanksgiving recipes. Such is life sometimes! So I will cut myself some slack and go get started prepping my pearl onions for my FAVORITE creamed onion recipe of course. Wishing everyone a truly happy Thanksgiving. Gratitude is everything! Enjoy…
Simple, Savory Butternut Squash
- 1 Butternut squash, peeled and cut in small chunks
- 1 small white onion, peeled and sliced into small pieces
- 2-3 Tb. Olive oil
- 1-2 Tb. Orange juice
- Fresh rosemary
- Salt & pepper
Fill a medium-sized pot with about 1/2 inch of water and bring to a boil. Add the butternut squash and cook covered for 7 minutes. While squash is cooking, heat about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and add the onion. Sautee the onion on medium-low heat just until soft and translucent. Chop about 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary and add to the onion. Stir around and let simmer just a couple minutes. Add 1/4 tsp. salt.
Place cooked squash in a serving bowl, making sure to drain off any remaining liquid. Pour onion & rosemary mixture on top and toss evenly. Pour on the orange juice and a bit of olive oil if desired. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and fresh ground pepper and toss to coat squash evenly. Garnish with a few sprigs of rosemary. Serve and enjoy!
