This dish is uncomplicated. It’s simple — just a few basic ingredients prepared without fuss. It’s a dish that proves that good food doesn’t require a lot of steps, ingredients or time.
Really, it doesn’t. Food can be amazing just by preparing it in a different way than you are used to. Tired of boiled? Try steamed. Tired of raw? Try sauteed. Or roast! Roasting is a perfect way to switch up your vegetable routine without getting fussy.
This dish has a naturally sweet flavor with ribbons of savory and salty running through it. Roasting each of these vegetables alone — butternut squash, Brussels sprouts and onions — draws out an inherent sweetness. They’re delicious. But roast them together — and with the magical ingredients of olive oil, salt and pepper — and they become this trifecta of sweet-savory goodness. This is the dish you make when you want to have an uncomplicated comforting dinner.
Serve this over brown rice, which brings a light nuttiness to the flavor as well.
