Quick and Healthy: Butternut Squash and Almond Rice Pilaf

January 11, 2012

Quick and Healthy:

A weekly meal for busy people, a reminder that healthy is easy, and the perfect alternative to take out.

Preheat your oven to 375, Cut the butternut squash in half/remove seeds, sprinkle olive oil on top, add salt/pepper, and put in a baking dish in the oven. Cook for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cook rice pilaf, mix in sliced almonds. When finished, add the rice to each squash cavity. Top with ground pepper and parsley.

We simultaneously roasted ours with Brussels spouts and red potatoes, and we had a fantastic Christmas Eve dinner.
