Thanksgiving recipes: squash & sweet potatoes

in: Crafts

I love winter squash and sweet potatoes. I’m not going to follow any of the recipes listed here. Dad is diabetic, so adding brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, etc. etc. to the squash is not really an option. In addition, I am thinking that I will add in other root veggies, e.g. leeks, turnips. Hm. I made a recipe out of Sunset one year that was fabulous. Hm. It was called Roasted Roots. I wonder if I can find it. … Can’t find it. :crappy:

Winter Squash explanation – but they diss my favorite: turbin squash.

Shopping list suggestions:
# 4 carrots (about 3/4 pound), peeled, halved lengthwise and crosswise, thick pieces halved again
# 2 sweet potatoes (about 1 pound total), peeled and cut into 3-by-1/2-inch pieces
# 1 butternut squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, seeded, and cut into 3-by-1/2-inch pieces
# 8 garlic cloves, unpeeled

8 squash, such as kabocha, acorn, delicata, and buttercup
