This recipe combines cold-weather vegetables – kale, winter squash, potatoes – with warming spices to make a dish that’s perfect for celebrating autumn.
Autumn Vegetable Hash
- 2 cups peeled and cubed winter squash (any kind)
- 2 medium potatoes, cubed (and peeled if you like)
- 4 cups sliced or shredded kale, stems removed
- 1 medium onion, minced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or chopped
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- salt to taste
Steam the vegetables in a steamer basket until tender, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, sauté onions, garlic, and spices in a small amount of oil until onions are translucent. Add the steamed vegetables and combine. That’s it! Can be served with fried eggs and/or sausage if you like. For a different kind of flavor, substitute rosemary and thyme for the spices.
Local analysis of the hash I made last night:
Local – all vegetables (from the CSA)
Non local – spices, salt, oil
