Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Peach Bake

Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Peach Bake is amazing! Butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and fresh peaches are combined with leeks, red onion, garlic, and walnuts and seasoned with fresh sage, cinnamon and parsley. A little walnut oil and honey are drizzled over the top before baking. That adds even more savory and sweet flavors to this scrumptious casserole dish. This delightful side dish is vegan, gluten free, low calorie, healthy, and tasty!

I had a butternut squash that had been sitting on my counter for a month. I knew I needed to use it up. Then I found some sweet potatoes that were starting to go bad so I cut off all the bad spots and used them. I also found an abundance of peaches stashed in several of my garage refrigerators that needed to be used. So voila! Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato and Peach Bake was envisioned.

I had been ruminating about what combination of spices and herbs I would use on these ingredients for a week or two. I finally decided on this combination that offered both salty/savory and sweet instead of just one or the other. This is the time of year when you can still get fresh peaches, so it’s a wonderful way to use them up. Plus, if your garden is overflowing with produce, this recipe will help in that regard as well.

The leeks, onions and garlic infuse so much wonderful flavor into this casserole. Unless you absolutely dislike any of these three veggies, I recommend you add all three to get the full flavor to balance out everything else in the recipe. The walnuts added a really nice crunch. This recipe would also be tasty with fresh cranberries, but those aren’t available this time of the year.

If you decide to make this as a holiday casserole and add fresh cranberries, you will have to use canned, sliced peaches or frozen peaches since they won’t be in season then. I think either would work fine in this recipe. If you cannot find fresh sage, substitute about 1/2 tsp. dried sage (in leaf form instead of ground if at all possible).

If you’re looking for a healthy way to eat butternut squash or sweet potatoes, this recipe is terrific. And, if you want to avoid as much sugar as possible, this is a great alternative. This side dish really would be an excellent choice for company or holiday dinners since it makes a lot. If you don’t want to make this much or have leftovers, then I would halve the recipe.

Even if you don’t care about eating healthy or how many calories you consume, this veggie casserole is really delicious and worth adding to your repertoire. We sure enjoyed it! I served it with Melt-In-Your-Mouth Turkey Tenderloins and both were immediately devoured. Enjoy. 🙂
