Serves 3-4

2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced into 3/4-inch cubes

1 cup cranberries

1/2 medium onion, sliced into wedges

1 tsp each crumbled dried rosemary and thyme

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp pomegranate or cranberry juice

2 tsp balsamic vinegar

sea salt

Preheat oven to 400F. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except for sea salt. Toss to coat, then pour into a baking dish.

Sprinkle with sea salt and cover the dish with foil. Bake for 20 mins, then remove the foil and bake for another 40, or until squash is soft. Serve as a side dish or on top of greens as a warm salad, using the thickened juices in the dish as dressing.

Makes 3-4 servings.

I will be making this soon! I just bought a squash at the grocery store because I used to love it as a child but couldn’t remember how my mom prepared it. This looks yummy so I will have to try.

cranberries must add just a little tang and tartness…and they provide such a great visual contrast in the photo. Beautiful!

I am always looking for new ways to use cranberries this time of year, and this is a wonderful new option.

I can definitely see something like this being a good stand-in for the same-ole sweet potatoes on the holiday table…(although, to be sure, there is nothing wrong with sweet potatoes either! ;) )
love,

Thanks for posting these Thanksgiving recipes. I was looking for new, unique recipes. I have this one in the oven right now, and I’m making the upside down apple cake next.

Sweet, and tart, and sweet, and has a bite. YUM! (Even if I did overcook it.)

I just enjoyed the last of the batch mixed with wilted spinach, EVOO, avocado chunks, and grapes. TOTALLY delish!
