Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprout, and Bread Stuffing with Apples

Ingredients

  • 1 pound butternut squash, cubed
  • 1 pound butternut squash, cubed
  • 1 pound brussel sprouts, halved
  • 1 medium apple, cut into a 1/2 inch dice
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided into 2 tbsp and 1 tbsp
  • 1cup onion, diced
  • 1cup celery, diced
  • 10 slices bread of choice: crusty sourdough, dry cornbread,
    • whole grain, or, if you are gluten free, millet bread
  • 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 pecans or walnuts
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash, brussel sprouts, apples, and shallots in 2 tbsp oil and season well with salt and pepper. Roast till vegetables are very tender (I actually like my sprouts a bit singed) and remove from oven. Reduce oven heat to 350.
  2. Heat other tbsp oil in a large pot. Sautee the onion and celery 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.
  3. Add the roasted vegetables, vegetable broth, cranberries, pecans, 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 and delicious.
