This Orange Roasted Winter Squash recipe is a simple yet cozy dish to throw together for the cold months. The sweetness of the winter squash paired with the earthy flavors of goat cheese and bitter sweet flavors of cranberries make for the best combinations. Not to mention, the whole thing is coated in orange juice to really secure the deliciousness.
Winter squash is one of the most bountiful foods you can find during the winter months. I love them because they are affordable, tasty, and typically offer multiple servings per squash. Not only that, but you can store them for a pretty long time in a cool dry place.
One of my favorite things to do with winter squash is to roast it and throw it in salads. However, sometimes I just want to taste their nutty goodness on their own, like in this dish.
The goat cheese and orange juice add a much needed tang to the dish, while the cranberries and squash bring it home with sweetness. Lastly, the fresh chopped parsley finishes the whole dish by added a much needed touch of freshness. This dish really is packed full of well-rounded flavor. Perfect to bring to your next gluten-free Thanksgiving.
