Delicious food is a common joy that puts a smile on even the most grumpiest of faces. It is nourishing, comforting, and delightful. After all, food was meant to be a source of nourishment to the soul and body, not contention, shame, or guilt.

We must strike balance in our approach to nourishment and with that concept of balance comes fearlessness.

Experimenting with different flavors and techniques can be fun, without breaking the wallet or time bank. So, that is what I do; try out different ideas to mix nourishing foods, seeking to find ones that complete each other, and gain another notch in my kitchen toolbelt.

This recipe fits my bill. It was easy, delicious, and fairly quick. It was a combination of butternut squash and potatoes! That is right!

FOOD OF THE MONTH: BUTTERNUT SQUASH

Bake butternut Squash at 370 degrees F for ~40 minutes (depending on its size and your oven) and puree it down in a blender with 1/4 c of water and 1 tsp of Nutritional Yeast.

Pour this on sliced potatoes (pre-boiled for 5-8 minutes and dried), sliced button mushrooms, and sliced white onions lined in a pan.

Sprinkle Himalayan or Sea Salt and repeat the process.

Once the pan is filled with at least 3 layers, place the pan in the oven on 350 for 40 minutes.

Why am I not giving you a full recipe? Because I believe you have creativity within you. I give you the suggested ingredients and your version of joyful eats based on your unique style and pallet.
