We recommend Agave Ginger to add a little ginger kick and a touch of sweetness to round out the earthiness of the squash and balance the tart dried fruit.

When you’re as busy as I am, you always need healthful and quick meals. This is one of my favorites, especially because it’s easy to slip a serving of vegetables right under the noses of my fussier grandnephews and grandnieces.
