End-of-Winter Veg

Say hello to healthy comfort food! This sweet, rich dish is full of hearty winter vegetables that will satisfy you so much, you’ll wish winter lasted all year long.


1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1/2 onion, sliced in thick half moons
1/4 winter squash, such as butternut or kabocha, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch slices
4 brussels sprouts, sliced into wedges (about 6 pieces per sprout)
1/3 cup water
splash shoyu (naturally brewed soy sauce)
toasted sesame seeds for garnish


• Heat a large heavy skillet or wok (one with a cover).
• Add the oil, then sauté the onion until limp.
• Add the squash and sauté for two minutes.
• Add the brussels sprouts and sauté for a minute.
• Add the water, cover the skillet, and allow to steam for 8 minutes, until the squash is tender and the brussels sprouts are bright.
• Season with a splash of shoyu, toss to blend, and serve, sprinkled with the sesame seeds.


• Instead of squash, use carrots and/or parsnips.
• Instead of brussels sprouts, use broccoli or kale.
• Instead of onions, use a leek.
• Instead of sesame seeds, use toasted pumpkin or sunflower seeds
