      I made this for lunch today and it was absolutely delicious. Sorry to report that the beets took much longer than the butternut squash (about 1 1/2 hours). I used curly kale which turned out to be quite tasty.

    • Kaley

      Can’t make my kids eat kale at all :(. But they love beets. Hope that this delicious combination will do its magic.
