"In Season" was the theme last night! I made pomegranate, pumpkin and butternut Squash. I made dinner for Sim's Brother Suveer (here from NY), his sister Sahiba and her boyfriend Keith. It was a "Throw Down Royale!"
Here was the menu:
Salad with avocado, tomatoes and pomegranate seeds
Marinated Grilled Chicken
A cage fight between:
Pumpkin Polenta and Butternut Squash Risotto
We had the chocolate chip pumpkin muffins for dessert with some hot apple cider Such a yummy fall meal! Here is how I did everything!:
The Salad: I used mache and arugula lettuces with hass avocados, cherry tomatoes and pomegranate seeds. I dressed it with a red wine vinaigrette. Click here for a trick to getting pomegranate seeds out of the fruit.
So after a vote, the butternut squash risotto won 3-1. Here is the recipe for the winner!
Here they are! Too bad risotto had to kick the polenta's butt in the taste challenge!! Let me know if there are ever any two recipes you'd like to compare and we'll continue the "cage fighting"! Here are Sahiba and Keith enjoying the muffins!
