  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

Butternut Squash Soup

  • Preheat oven to 450 F. Toss butternut squash, carrots, onions and garlic cloves in olive oil and salt & pepper. Add to a parchment-lined baking sheet then roast for 30 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  • Add roasted veggies, vegetable broth and sage leaves to a blender and wait 10 minutes for mixture to cool before blending (hot liquid can explode). Serve and enjoy! Soup can be frozen up to 3 months.

Stuffed squash

  • Preheat oven to 450 F. Microwave squash one at a time for 2 minutes each. Peel and slice butternut squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds then arrange halves on a parchment lined baking sheet, cut sides up.
  • Bake for 45 minutes until softened. Meanwhile, mix fennel, paprika, garlic powder, salt & pepper into raw ground turkey to create sausage. Pan fry with olive oil over med-high heat for 7-8 minutes until fully browned and cooked through. Stir in kale then set aside.
  • Remove squash from oven and scrape out a thin layer of flesh. Either reserve flesh for another use or toss with cooked turkey and kale, then stuff back into squash and bake another 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
