Apple, Squash, Leek Gratin
Grain Free. Soy Free. Paleo. Vegetarian & Vegan Versions.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, we thought we'd give you some great holiday planning recipes and side dishes the whole family will love. This is a new recipe of ours that is full of both sweet and savory flavors. If your family typically does candied yams or a sweet potato souffle or casserole, this dish would run in the same category but uses organic apples to sweeten the dish instead of brown sugar, marshmallows, or other processed sugars that are usually a part of sweet potato casserole. I personally like to eat my sugar in the form of dessert and not a side dish, so this is a great dish to help me not overdo the sugar intake during dinner and save some room for dessert!
If you are dairy free, no worries, use our fabulous Hemp Parmesan (as pictured above) instead of regular Parmesan to add some healthy fats and clean protein. This is a flavor combo you will not want to miss!
