Happy National Herbs and Spices Day! I love nutmeg, it’s one of my favorite spices and I also love butternut squash. This is probably one of the easiest recipes to make and can be prepared with any type of vegetable in season or whatever you have on hand. You can also add/omit any ingredients to make it to your own preferences. To make it even easier I like to use an oven to stove to table baking dish such as an enameled cast-iron pot.

  • 1 large butternut squash, chopped into large chunks
  • Any vegetables such as carrots, fresh pumpkin, or celery, in any amount you like, sliced

  • 2-4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
