When I saw this recipe on the list I was excited to make it as it contains some of my favorite flavors- squash, apples, brown sugar and Brussels sprouts. After last weeks less then stellar recipe, my anticipation grew throughout the week waiting for Friday to arrive. Unfortunately, I spent most of Friday in bed with a migraine so Ari took the helm for this recipe.
The recipe was as easy as could be. I had bought pre-cut squash rather then having to deal with peeling and butchering a whole one. Oddly, the recipe says papillote- which traditionally is parchment paper, but in the directions it says aluminium foil. Ari stuck to the traditional method and used parchment but I am sure either would have been fine.
After filling the four packages, he had some of the vegetables leftover so those were baked separately in a roasting pan. I am so glad there was more than those four packages left! He brought me up a tray with a single package in it and I sent him back for the all the rest!
The squash and apple were soft and tender and Brussels sprouts were sweet with the brown sugar. It was incredibly good and I am happy to say, that this recipe will definitely be made again (& again)!
Sorry, but I cannot share the recipe- but you can (and should!) buy the book and cook along with us. It’s great fun! Every Friday we make a new recipe. And I can’t wait for next weeks! For details and to see how others are recreating the dishes from this awesome book, check out the FFWD site.
