Butternut Squashadillas with Frizzled Onions and Sage
These are the sort of appetizer or simple dinner that people will curiously try, then polish off in a hot minute. Guac or a good salsa make good accompaniments. Serve right out of the oven, crispy and hot.
Serves: 2 10-inch squashadillas
  • •1 small butternut squash (halved and seeded)
  • •1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • •3 cloves garlic, minced
  • •2 teaspoons (packed) very thinly sliced sage leaves
  • •1½ teaspoons chile powder
  • •salt to taste
  • •Olive oil (coconut oil works too)
  • •four 10-inch whole wheat or brown rice tortillas
  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F. Rub the cut ends of the butternut squash with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Put face down on a nonstick baking sheet and roast for about 35 minutes, or until the flesh is tender. Allow to cool, then scoop out the flesh and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a nonstick frying pan. When hot, add the onion slices and cook over medium high heat until soft. Don’t stir too often–you want the edges to be “frizzled” and deeply golden.
  3. Add the garlic and sage, and stir constantly for a minute until garlic softens. Add the butternut squash flesh and mash it into the onion mixture with a wooden spoon. Add the chile powder and kosher salt to taste.
  4. Heat tortillas in oven until pliable. Spread half of the butternut squash mixture onto a tortilla and top with another tortilla. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Brush the tortillas with olive oil or coconut oil and bake at 350˚F on a sheet pan until golden and crispy on the edges, about 6 minutes on each side (flip halfway through).
  5. Serve while hot.
  6. Variations:
  7. •Substitute different herbs, such as cilantro or rosemary and thyme
  8. •Use the butternut mixture as a filling for vegan enchiladas
  9. •Play around with the spice mixture, adding coriander, cumin, etc…
