What happens when you’ve so eagerly anticipated Fall that you just have to eat as many seasonal foods as possible?
This side dish. Colorful butternut squash and crisp Granny Smith apples are tossed with just enough maple syrup and chipotle to add sweet kick. They’re roasted alongside onion to add enough savory to balance everything. It’s basically Fall on a plate.
Grab a cup of cocoa and a pair of boots- Fall is here!
