Serves: 4-6

Ingredients

4 cups cauliflower, chopped

1 cup butternut squash

1 cup yellow onion, chopped

10 oz. mushrooms, chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 pat butter

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (from 4-6 sprigs)

2 sprigs fresh sage (10-12 leaves), chopped

½ cup walnuts or pecans toasted (optional)

1 cup cooked sausage crumbles (optional)

salt and pepper, to taste

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange the chopped cauliflower, sweet potato and onion in a single layer on the lined baking sheets. Roast both pans of vegetables at 400F for about 30 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Stir the vegetables half-way through the cooking time to prevent burning.
  4. Remove vegetables from oven as they become done.
  5. While the vegetables are roasting, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the garlic for 30 seconds, then add in the mushrooms and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until tender.
  6. Transfer the roasted vegetables and sautéed mushroom mixture to a large food processor. Add in the fresh thyme and chopped sage. Pulse the vegetable mixture a few times leaving it chunky in texture. If you do not have a food processor you can simply chop the vegetables coarsely with a large knife and transfer to a bowl.
  7. Stir in nuts and or sausage crumbles.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste, and serve warm!
