Baked Squash with Vegetables

Mmmmm I love the sweet vegetables in this meal. So very yummy and so many Powerfoods in one meal. Another great thing I like about this meal is that it is so simple to prepare and in only one dish which means there are few dishes to wash.



1 medium kabocha squash
2 sweet potatoes
2 medium carrots
2 parsnips
10 very small onions or cut up one big onion
3 – 7 cloves garlic, sliced (optional)
1 tsp rosemary
3 tbsp. coconut oil or ghee
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste (optional)


1.    Cut carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes and squash into 2 inch pieces.
2.    Remove skins from onions and leave whole.
3.    Place all vegetables into a glass casserole dish.
4.    Mix in sliced garlic, rosemary, coconut oil or ghee, and sprinkle with salt.
5.    Bake in 400º F. oven for 45 to 60 minutes till tender.
