  • Three Sisters Casserole

    The Three Sister’s dish is made with healthy fall harvests that Native Americans planted together - winter squash, beans, and corn. It’s delicious and nutritious, rich in vitamins, protein, and fiber.

    INGREDIENTS

    1 cup butternut (or other winter) squash, cooked*

    2 cups cooked kidney beans

    2 cups corn 1/2 cup natural maple syrup

    1 Tablespoon dill herb

    PREPARATION

    *To prepare/bake squash: Cut un-cooked winter squash in half (or into quarters if large). Scoop out seeds. Place flesh side down in baking dish with 1/4 inch water. Bake at 375 degrees until squash is tender, about 45 minutes. The roasted seeds make a healthy snack or salad/soup topper. Let squash cool and then scoop flesh as spoonfuls into sauce pan. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Heat until warm; about 10 minutes. A hearty main dish for four, serve with cooked leafy greens or a fresh green salad for a colorful and complete meal. For a delicious “wrap,” scoop prepared casserole onto a whole grain tortilla, add fresh salad greens and a drizzle of favorite salad dressing, roll up and enjoy for a delicious meal on the go.
