Food Quotes

"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".

Winter Squash with Pecans and Blue Cheese

1 1/2 lb. winter squash, peeled and cut into thin lengthwise wedges
1 small sweet onion, cut in 1-inch pieces
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup crispy pecans
1 tablespoon organic maple syrup
4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (unpasteurized and unfiltered)
1 1/2 teaspoon raw honey
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese or finely shredded white cheddar cheese

Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking dish combine squash, and onion pieces. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil; sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Toss gently to combine. Spread mixture in a single layer. Bake for 3o to 35 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring once. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in pecan pieces, maple syrup and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until pecans are coated with maple syrup mixture. Remove from heat; spread on foil and let stand to cool completely. For dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Slowly whisk in remaining 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until combined. To serve, transfer squash and onion to serving plate. Drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with pecans and remaining blue cheese. Makes 6 servings.
