There’s no need to limit yourself to Thanksgiving with this robust casserole.  It also tastes great served along side roast lamb or pork dishes.   I even found the recipe reheated well the next day and made for a great lunch!

Butternut Squash Lentil Casserole

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups onion, finely chopped

1 cup lentils

4 cups low sodium vegetable stock

3 cups cubed butternut squash (1 inch size)

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley

1 teaspoon salt, adjust depending on stock

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/2 tsp large pinch cumin seed

1/3 cup sliced scallion tops

1.  Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-high heat.  When foam subsides, add onion; cook until softened, about 5 minutes.  Add lentils; toss with spoon to combine.   Pour in vegetable stock; heat to boiling.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until lentils are barely tender, about 20 minutes.

2.   Add butternut squash, lemon juice, parsley, salt, ginger, pepper, and cumin seed to pan; stir to mix well.  Cover pan; cook until butternut squash is tender, about 15 minutes.

3.  Stir scallion tops into butternut squash-lentil mixture; transfer to covered serving dish.  Serve hot.
