    1 medium-sized butternut squash
    2 tsp (10 mL) grapeseed or extra-virgin olive oil
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) unsalted butter
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) grainy mustard
    4 fresh sage leaves, chopped
    2 tsp (10 mL) minced fresh ginger
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) sea salt
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
    1/2 cup (125 mL) grated Parmesan cheese

    Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).

    Slice butternut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Brush flesh with oil and lay the halves cut side down on parchment paper- or silicone-lined baking sheet. Roast squash until very soft, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside until cool enough to handle.

    Scoop out flesh from squash halves and place in food processor along with butter, mustard, sage, ginger, salt, and pepper. Purée until smooth.

    Place mixture in baking dish, sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese, and bake until golden brown in spots and cheese has melted, about 15 minutes.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
