Microgreens growing in the greenhouse

Carmelized Butternut Squash

2 medium butternut squash

6 Tbsp butter, melted

1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400.  Cut off and discard ends of squash.  Peel squash, then cut in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds.  Cut squash into  1 1/4- 1 1/2 inch cubes and place on baking sheet.  Add melted butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper.  Toss all ingredients together and spread in a single layer on baking sheet.  Roast for 45-55 minutes, until squash is tender and glaze begins to carmelize.  While roasting, turn squash a few times with a spatula, to be sure it browns evenly.  Taste for seasonings and serve hot.

  1. The micro greens have been a hit in our household. Oh, to taste fresh newly exploding salad greens in the dead of winter- The exquisite flavor of each tiny seedling is such a surprise! I don’t like to do anything more than maybe a spray of walnut oil or a couple drops of coconut amino sauce to ‘dress’ it— not that it needs anything!
    I know it must be labor and seed intensive, Pam— Just know your artistry is greatly appreciated!

  2. It is such a treat to see these pictures: This is how our food is produced. Thank you, Pam for ‘producing’ it.
