Did You Know That Butternut Squash Is Actually A Pumpkin?

Apples, rice and butternut squash are three of my favorite foods. When I came across this recipe in my latest issue of VegNews I just had to share it. The whole recipe from start to finish should take about 40 minutes and this particular recipe serves ten. Perfect for company or for lunch the next day. Since squash, wild rice and apples are all high in fiber, this is one meal that will fill you up but yet manage to taste great. This dish is 100% vegan 🙂
