The orange gold hues, creamy flavor contrasted with carmelized onion and poblano (or bell pepper) strips, makes this one of my favorite fall dishes. It is also deliciously healthy. Butternut squash and sweet potatoes are in the pumpkin family, rich in carotenoids.

– Use only sweet potatoes or only butternut squash
– Leave the seeds in the poblano pepper for delightful contrast of spicy and sweet
– An accompaniment to Rosemary Roasted Pork, or Broiled Chicken and Artichoke for a dinner party menu, with a Green Bean and Arugula Salad or a Kale Salad. Make the Apple and Cranberry Crisp for dessert.
– As a delicious, nutritious topping for the Sweet Potato Shepherd Pie, or make an impromptu shepherd pie over leftover chili, particularly the Lentil Chili.
I double this recipe for the Thanksgiving 2016 Menu.
