St. Paul hosts Thanksgiving farmers’ market
The St. Paul Farmers’ Market is hosting a Thanksgiving market today. It’s a big deal because this is the one day each year that the market is open on a weekday. They’ve got all the fixings from turkey to sides and baked goods. The market will be open from 10am to 4pm at 290 5th St. E. Below are two recipes we shared on the Fox 9 Morning News. Both were made with ingredients from this special edition of the Farmers’ Market.
Ingredients • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 1/8 teaspoon ground thyme • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper • salt to taste • 1/2 cup shredded Romano cheese
Directions • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. • Mix butternut squash, olive oil, thyme, black pepper, and salt in a large bowl until evenly coated. Spread mixture in a large baking dish in an even layer; cover with aluminum foil. • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes; remove foil and stir in half the Romano cheese. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Return to oven, uncovered, and continue to bake until tender and golden brown, about 20 minutes more.
