Moroccan Inspired Vegetables Medley with Corn Bread

Moroccan Inspired Vegetables Medley with Corn Bread

Fall flavors with fruity notes, a hint of cinnamon and a bit sweet. The cornbread is savory but delicious, moist even though it’s vegan.

Medley Ingredients:
  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 16 small shallots, peeled and left whole (regular shallots work fine, cut them into ¼ inch pieces)
  • 2 cups of butternut squash
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into ¼ inch rounds
  • 3/4 cups pitted prunes
  • 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 3/4 cups vegetable or chicken stock

Garnish:

  • Cilantro roughly chopped
  • Fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Cooking Instructions:

  2. Toss in shallots and let them cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3.  When shallots begin to color add in the butternut squash and carrots.
  4. Saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring and then add in the prunes and maple syrup.
