Instant Pot Orange Spiced Butternut Squash

The instant pot works its magic once more! I love butternut squash, but damn, is it a pain in the ass to peel! And then roast! I don’t have time or patience for that.

I finally had the bright idea to put my Instant Pot to use here! Pressure cooking butternut squash for 7 minutes makes it incredibly easy to remove the outer peel (it sloughs right off!). It also evenly cooks the squash, making for a better tasting mash.

Oven Roasted Whole Sweet Potatoes

Oven Roasted Whole Sweet Potatoes

Truth be told we use our microwave for one thing and one thing only: cooking sweet potatoes. It's 5 minutes and the potato is steamy and soft! With a toddler and limited time, I can't argue with the simplicity. 

But taking the time to prep potatoes for the oven is SO FREAKING WORTH IT. It tastes like a whole different vegetable when it's little sugar and starches get the chance to caramelize. So much more flavor and depth! 

Roasted Balsamic Radishes

Radishes take on a whole new flavor when roasted. Their peppery kick transforms into a mildly sweet and mellow flavor and their texture is more akin to a roasted potato, crispy on the outside with a soft inside. This makes them a delightful option for those who may not do well with potatoes, but still want that traditional eggs & potatoes breakfast vibe.
