Thanksgiving is right around the corner! This update to Food 52’s original recipe is sure to satisfy everyone at your table – omnivores included!
1 pound butternut squash, cubed
1pound brussels sprouts, halved
1 medium pear, cut into a 1/2 inch dice
2 shallots, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided into 2 tbsp and 1 tbsp
1 cup onion, diced
1 cup fennel, diced
10 slices bread of choice: crusty sourdough, dry cornbread, whole grain. Prior to cooking, leave bread out for a day to become slightly dry, then cut into cubes.
1 ½ cups vegetable broth (plus extra as needed)
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup walnuts
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash, brussels sprouts, pears, and shallots in 2 tbsp oil and season well with salt and pepper. Roast till vegetables are tender and remove from oven. Reduce oven heat to 350.
Heat other tbsp oil in a large pot. Sautee the onion and fennel till translucent (about 5-8 min). Add the bread cubes and allow them to get golden brown with the veggies in the oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper.
Add the roasted vegetables, vegetable broth, cranberries, walnuts, and seasonings. Stir the mix till the broth has almost entirely absorbed in the toasted bread. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
