Butternut Squash with Red Onion

Butternut squash is one of those things that is practically indestructible in the pantry and seem to be plentiful in the fall. Cherry Valley market had a good price on these the other day so I picked one up with a nice couple of red onions and decided to get these two together on an date so to speak.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 medium butternut squash cut into ½ inch dice
  • 1 small red onion sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic sliced
  • About 10 dates diced
  • ¼ cup Duck Walk white
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives
  • Sea salt

Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over high heat. Add the squash and brown it. Add the onions and garlic, cook till the onions are soft. Add the dates and deglaze with the wine. Cook this down till the liquid evaporates. Mix in the chives and remove from the heat. Serve! Preferable with a stripped sea bass:
