Roasted Butternut Squash and Vegetable Galette

This makes 6 large meal size servings. Serve it along side a salad made of baby greens and tossed with a balsamic vinaigrette. It could be the perfect dish to add to a brunch – instead of the usual quiche. It’s so versatile that it would even work as a hot appetizer cut into 12 smaller slices. You can change up the veggies if you wish. Use what you love the most or what’s in your vegetable drawer at the moment. Oh and if you are like me and Gruyere is out of your budget at around $10 @ pound you can sub Swiss cheese. Better yet, if you have Trader Joe’s nearby check out their Gruyere – Swiss Cheese Blend that is already shredded for you. It has lovely flavor and is reasonably priced!

There is something about oven roasting vegetables that just takes them to a new level of deliciousness. The process allows the natural sugars to come out and caramelize creating a nice, slightly sweet exterior on every little morsel while keeping the inside all moist and soft. Imagine combining roasted butternut squash, red onion and cabbage with the richness of cream cheese and the buttery goodness of Gruyere cheese. When you go to slice it the gooey cheese oozes out and then the aroma wafts up and you just know you are about to eat one of the most pleasurable meatless meals you could ever imagine.
