Recipes for Mabon - Veggies

Tuesday, August 23, 2011
Mabon is the harvest of the vine, so I wanted to focus on that theme in this and the next two installments of Recipes for Mabon. One of my kids favorite recipes is my version of Ratatouille.

For this recipe all you need is:

Two large cans crushed tomatoes
One medium zucchini squash
Two medium butternut squash
Around 3 cups of rice
Italian Seasoning and Kosher salt (any salt will do but I prefer kosher)

In a Dutch Oven or glass stew pot, mix the tomatoes and rice. If the tomatoes don't look like a sauce then you can mash them a little before you add the rice.
Cook this in the oven for around an hour at 350 degrees.
Now you can cut the squash up into large chunks. Aim for larger chunks, larger then you think you will eat. The reason being that is they will shrink when they are cooked.
Then add them to pot and stir them in. Remember this will be very hot.
You can also season the pot at this time with the italian seasoning and a pinch of salt.
Cook this for around 45 minutes or until the squash is tender. It is up to you how tender that is, some people like a little bite to their squash.
When done sample and season to taste.

Hope you all enjoy this. If you have any recipes like this don't hesitate to comment below.

Blessed Be!
