Roasted Delicata Squash Over Millet
• 2 delicata squash, halved and seeds scooped out
• 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
• sea salt and ground pepper
• 3/4 cup millet
• 2 cups water
• 1 small onion, finely chopped
• 1 garlic clove, minced
• 1 tablespoon fresh or dried rosemary, finely chopped
• balsamic vinegar (a few drizzles to finish)
Directions: Roast the delicata in the oven at 350 °F or 400 °F until tender when pierced with a fork. Heat the oil on the bottom of a medium pot and add the garlic and onion, sauteing over medium heat until translucent and lightly browned. Add the rosemary and stir for another 2 minutes, then add the millet and the water and bring the heat to high until it boils.
Reduce heat to a simmer and cover for about 10-15 minutes. Check and turn off heat when millet is light and fluffy (and all water is absorbed). Give it some fluffs with a fork and season with sea salt and black pepper. Place the squash halves on plates and add spoonfuls of millet over them. Drizzle with a splash of balsamic vinegar. Serve warm.
Grilled Chicken And Garlic Mashed Turnips
• 3 lbs. of chicken (breasts, legs, or thighs)
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
• 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 cups diced turnips
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 3 teaspoons olive oil
• sea salt
Directions: Combine chicken, basil, lemon juice, and olive oil in a large bowl and toss together. Refrigerate and let marinate 2 hours (preferred, but you can also just let it sit for ten minutes if you’re short on time). Bake the chicken for about 50 to 60 minutes at 425 °F, or until cooked through.
Cook turnip cubes and garlic cloves in boiling water for 15 minutes or until soft. Mash turnips as you would potatoes (can also use a food processor). Add olive oil and sea salt to consistency and taste. Serve together.
That's all folks, dinner is served!
