There were two butternut squash and one acorn squash
from the local organic CSA at the end of the season.
What would be the best way to use up these winter squash?
Butternut squash is delicious when it is roasted with butter
However, I don’t want to make a side dish.
I am trying to make a simple entrée that can incorporate
There are some Chinese dishes with root vegetables and meat.
There is the famous mashed taro with duck(芋泥鴨 in Chinese).
The steamed spare ribs with five-spice rice powder(粉蒸排骨)
is another example. With this dish, potatoes or sweet potatoes
are placed on the bottom of the dish.
記得中國菜中 著名的芋泥鴨 還有下面墊著甘薯或者馬鈴薯的粉蒸排骨
Winter squash will absorb the juice from the meat nicely when
they are cooked together.
A whole organic Smart Chicken was cut into quarters. It was
tossed with some extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and freshly
ground black pepper and chopped fresh thyme from the CSA.
把一隻有機的土雞 切成四大塊 灑上一些海鹽 黑胡椒 切碎的百里香
As for the butternut squash, it was peeled and cubed. Some
olive oil, salt, and chopped up sage (also from the CSA) flavored it.
奶油瓜 就切塊狀 灑點鹽 淋點橄欖油 切碎的鼠尾草
Arrange both ingredients in a large roasting pan and bake them
until the chicken pieces are done and butternut squash is soft.
Dark and white meat require different cooking time. Keep a close
eye on this to prevent over-cooking the chicken and ensure it
moist and juicy.
把這兩種主食材 放在夠大的烤盤 烤到雞肉和奶油瓜熟透
雞腿 雞胸 和奶油瓜 所需的時間 都不太相同
所以必須注意 免得烤老 烤焦 烤乾了 烤好的食材 要先拿出來
Butternut squash is very flavorful because it has absorbed
the juices from the chicken.
奶油瓜 因為吸收雞的湯汁 所以非常美味Q甜(適度的甜味)
You can also use some home-made chicken stock to cook with the
leftover roasted squash into hearty butternut squash soup.
剩下的奶油瓜 可以加入雞湯去煮 然後攪碎成類似南瓜湯
With the temperature dipping down in Chicago, this dish is perfect
for fall. It is simple and quick to prepare. With another side
of vegetables and some house-made baguettes, dinner is served.
