Thought butternut squash is a classic fall ingredient, it's great any time of the year. It's also a great filling for pasta. Here, the squash is stewed and simmered with garlic, roasted red pepper, and nutmeg and combined with healthy ground turkey to make a comforting family meal. The squash is tender and sweet and the turkey is hearty. Serve with a light green salad and dinner is done.
White rice is a Latin kitchen staple, served alongside chicken, beef, seafood, vegetarian dishes, and more. In this recipe, white rice gets a bump of flavor from sweet caramelized onions. Once you've mastered this dish, you'll always be halfway to a classic Latin meal. What's more, you can use this rice as a stuffing for veggies and a base for soups and stews.
