Rosemary Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

Have you ever tried pasta sauce that wasn’t red or white? I admit that I haven’t had any other sauce besides tomato or Alfredo (or other cheese sauce) with pasta before I tried avocado pasta sauce very recently. My next non-traditional pasta sauce experiment: rosemary butternut squash pasta sauce. I had a lot of butternut squash left over from a butternut squash soup I made, and when trying to think of other things to cook with it, I thought of […]

Butternut Squash Pizza

This butternut squash pizza is one of my favorite vegetarian dishes because it is very flavorful and filling.

To speed things up in the kitchen, you can use a store-bought pizza crust. This recipe works well as an appetizer or main dish. Butternut Squash Pizza Recipe Ingredients 1 large pizza crust 1 butternut squash, halved 1/4 cup water 2 tbsp […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Salad

Are you guys excited that it’s pumpkin season? I love seeing pumpkins in grocery stores right now, because they make me dream of all of the delicious recipes I can make with them! One of my favorite Fall salads is this roasted butternut squash salad. I use my Magic Bullet to quickly mix up a sweet honey balsamic dressing and toss it together with some spinach, pecans and pumpkin seeds, while my chopped butternut squash is roasting in the oven.

Vegan Squash and Kale Tacos with Cashew “Crema”

This meal is delicious and both vegan and gluten-free. I mean, come on: that’s a food trend trifecta. Despite containing no animal products and no gluten, these tacos are truly satisfying. The Magic Bullet does a great job of faking out Mexican crema (like sour cream, only a bit runnier); the cashews blend up into a nice, creamy white sauce, and the lime provides that classic sour tang. I got the idea for this recipe from the cookbook Tacolicious, via Serious […]

Butternut Squash Puree

I know, I know. It’s not fall. Which means you’re probably eating watermelon and not squash. But you know what, I live in Hawaii. We don’t have any seasons. So I am going to eat whatever I feel like. Whenever I see it. So for all you seasonal-eating, farmers-market shopping, actually-have-leaves-that-fall-kind of people that I’m so very jealous of.. well…put this one in your box until October. Or, don’t. Be a little bit like me and eat some fall in […]
