Nice tasting and healthy meal, would suggest serving with kale (put in the oven and salted) and heavily seasoning the butternut squash otherwise it's a little bland.

Dry, bland and pretty awful. Love the ingredients but together they did not sing in this recipe. Won’t be making again!

Absolutely delicious. My toddler was really excited when he saw them and my meat eating husband also loved them. Definitely try them.
