Regular readers of this blog know I’m a bit obsessed with butternut squash, and won’t be surprised to see yet another recipe using the delicious orange wonder-food.
It’s also yet another recipe offered as a sneaky way to get kids to eat vegetables (see Cauliflower Mac ‘n’ Cheese from last week). Jessica Seinfeld, who wrote a book on the topic, offers her version of the butternut squash quesadilla here. Kid-friendly basically just means it’s a really delicious use for vegetables, right?
My version is so simple, I’m not even going to offer formal directions (i.e., “Heat a frying pan …”). You know how to make a quesadilla. So do that, but just add half a cup of pureed butternut squash to the cheese before you place it on a tortilla. If you want to jazz it up, add onion, garlic and chili powders, cumin and coriander to taste.
In other runner-friendly recipe news, Mastersinhealthcare.com, a guide to online master’s degrees in health care (I know … who knew?) has compiled a terrific list of 100 runner-friendly recipes in its blog. It includes some from Runner’s World, others from blogs I frequent, and others still from blogs I don’t yet frequent—but I will. I’m excited to try this recipe for homemade multigrain energy bars, among others on the list.
