Roast your Squash with this Easy, Seasonal Recipe from Carolyn Herriot

Carolyn Herriot, Author of The Zero-Mile Diet Cookbook: Seasonal Recipes for Delicious Home Grown Food, has been a generous and consistent contributor to Recipes of My Home. She lives and farms about a 10 minute drive from where we live on Vancouver Island. We met this past June at her IncrEdibles! Farm Stand and I ended up interviewing Carolyn for my blog.

Carolyn so kindly shared this recipe from her book for Squash & Potato Roast. This recipe couldn’t be any easier or more delicious.  As I am thinking about what to ‘throw’ together for our  Canadian Thanksgiving family dinner, I know this recipe will make the cut.

From her Farm in Yellow Point, Carolyn writes:

‘Tis the season for squash and I love veggie roasts as they are so fast to throw together and are so tasty.

It’s great to have leftovers too. Here’s one delicious variation.


Makes 4 to 6 servings


2 apples, quartered and cored (can also use quince)
10 small potatoes
1 butternut squash, peeled and chopped into 1-inch cubes (or any other orange fleshed squash)

Sprig of rosemary, needles only
1 tsp. (5 mL) dried sage
1 tsp. (5 mL) coarse salt
1 tsp. (5 mL) fresh ground pepper
Drizzle of grapeseed oil

Drizzle of maple syrup

How To
