Roasted Calabaza, Onion and Sweet Potato

Posted Dec 02 2010 9:25am
I know I'm a little weird.

I don't post a lot of delectable desserts or deadly dinners a la Paula Deen to attract the food gawking masses.

And I. Love. Squash.

See?  We have something in common.  Who doesn't love squash? This brings me to the calabaza.
The dressing from the kohlrabi and radish salad just begged me to be made again because it was so good.  But how could I use it again and create an entirely different dish?
I decided to use it on the calabaza I got from my CSA and a few sweet potatoes and it came amazing.  Both are a bit sweet and when paired with some onion and thyme it gives it such a holiday flavor.  I had it hot out of the oven and cold over some lettuce and fresh spinach.  It was amazing any which way.

I've now dubbed squash my favorite food (And sweet potatoes.  They are good too).
