We had chicken stuffed with homemade ricotta and frozen-from-the-summer basil pesto, parsnip and potato oven-baked fries, and roasted squash with chickpeas. We've already blogged about the parsnip and potato chips: http://csanovascotia.blogspot.com/2011/01/we-were-out-at-kenneths-parents-place.html.
For the squash, I used a recipe adapted from Paradiso Seasons (a fantastic vegetarian cookbook - and a great restaurant, if you're ever in Cork, Ireland).
butternut squash, in chunks
1 small onion, diced
1 fresh red chili, sliced
4 T chickpeas (cooked or canned)
1 T cumin seeds
1/2 c water
handful fresh coriander
Toss the squash in olive oil and roast at 400 until a fork can be inserted easily (about 20 minutes). Saute the onion in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil; add chili, chickpeas and cumin. Cook for a minute then add water and some salt. Bring to a boil then pour over the roasted squash. Return to the oven for 5-10 minutes. Top with fresh coriander before serving.
