Because it's in season in the colder months, we eat a lot of winter squash (acorn, butternut, etc.).
We usually eat it with soy-free Earth Balance and brown sugar or maple syrup, but sometimes you want something a little different. This variation will be a staple in our menus this fall and winter. Keep this in mind for a Thankgsiving side dish!
