Are you feeling as stuffed as I am? This year we actually celebrated Thanksgiving a week early with Jack’s family – yet I’m still full from his mom’s amazing apple pie and the leftovers we’ve been snacking on all week.
This weekend, I’m craving food that’s a little bit healthier but still comforting and delicious so I thought I’d share just a few ideas:
Butternut Squash & Leek Risotto (pictured)
Spaghetti Squash with Chickpeas & Kale (pictured)
Butternut Squash & Tart Cherry Quinoa
Sweet Potato Pomegranate Salad
Roasted Acorn Squash with Pears and Miso Dressing from Edible Perspective
Sweet Potato Ravioli with Kale Pesto from The First Mess
Butternut Squash Lasagna from My New Roots
Stuffed Za’atar Roasted Acorn Squash from Dolly and Oatmeal
Kale and Roasted Red Kuri Squash Salad from A House in the Hills
Northern Spy’s Kale Salad from Food 52
Roasted Delicata Squash Salad from 101 Cookbooks
This year, I have no New Year’s resolutions… (I made a few last year that I still haven’t gotten around to).
I say… lets not be healthy because it’s January, let’s be healthy because it tastes good. Soups always steal the show in the wintertime (rightfully so), but lets not count out salads… especially vibrant, hearty ones full of interesting colors and textures. Here are a few from around the web that have inspired me lately. Check out my Winter Salads board to see more.
