Last week I made two delish dishes from our December VegCookbook, Vegan Holiday Kitchen. The first was the Ravioli with Sweet Potatoes and Sage.
Sooooo good. It takes a little time to assemble all of the parts, but it’s worth it. For the ravioli, I used Rising Moon Organics’ Organic Butternut Squash Ravioli. I made one boo boo while assembling the recipe, that actually tasted quite good. You’re supposed to top the ravioli with the cubed sweet potatoes, and then add the bread crumbs, but I put the bread crumbs on, and then the sweet potatoes, so I just added another layer of breadcrumbs on top. You can’t really have too many breadcrumbs on a casserole, right?
I also made the “Three Sisters” Stew. According to the book, “Squash, corn and beans are known as the ‘Three Sisters’ in Native American mythology. In some legends, the sisters are also the daughters of the Earth Mother.”
The stew was very flavorful, and surprisingly sweet. We ate it with rice and the Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts from our October VegCookbook, Chloe’s Kitchen. We’re not a super spicy-loving household, so I only used 1 teasoon of chili powder, even though it called for two, and omitted the 1-2 fresh hot chilies. Oh, and I used an orange bell pepper, even though the recipe called for a green, or a red one, which would have looked much nicer. My orange pepper blended in with the butternut squash.
