Dinner so far this week

Cauliflower and brussel sprouts

I had some brussel sprouts I needed to use up, so I roasted the cauliflower, the brussel sprouts, and some onion. Also sauted some garlic and shallots in some butter, and fried some panko. Tossed it all together, put it over rice, and man was it good. There should have been leftovers for lunch, but we ate every last bit. It tasted exactly like fall.

Last night I wanted something simple because I was feeling a bit down. I cubed and roasted the butternut squash from last week. While it roasted, I diced an onion, and sauted it in a bit of olive oil. Added some cumin, salt and pepper and a can of black beans. While I was doing all that, I minced garlic, tossed it into yet another pan, and threw some spinach in with it to wilt the spinach.

Inside the burrito

When the squash was done, I assembled the burritos – tortilla, a bit of shredded cheddar, bean mixture, spinach mixture, squash. Rolled it up, put it in a cooking pan, and when the pan was full, tossed some grated mozzarella over the top (who ate all the pepper jack?) and put it in the oven for 20 minutes.

Pretty good, and I used so little cheese, it felt pretty healthy. The only thing that wasn’t local was the salt. Yay! We are eating pretty healthy at this point.
