Recipe ReDux: Goat Cheese and Butternut Squash Triangles

Orange you glad it’s fall?

Why yes, I sure am, thank you for asking.

The theme for this month’s Recipe ReDux is “Orange you glad it’s fall?”

This one made me happy because A) yes, I am ecstatic that it’s fall and B) I love all orange foods – carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, butternut squash…

So I thought about a million different ideas, and then looked in my refrigerator and went to Whole Foods to play & find some goodies.

Out of all the orange foods I like, I feel like butternut squash is the most forgotten. OK, maybe it’s not super orange, but it’s still pretty orange.

And with everyone’s love of pumpkin this time of year, I decided to not make a pumpkin recipe.

I was planning on doing ravioli but there were no ravioli sheets at Whole Foods, so I found the next best (maybe even better) thing – Phyllo {or Fillo} Dough.

Whole Foods even has a whole wheat version! Yay!

Then I thought about doing mini phyllo cup appetizer things, but just really didn’t want to have to make individual tiny phyllo cups then fill them with something.

That just seemed like a lot of work, and the point is to get me to persuade you to try something delicious & healthy.

A lot of meticulous steps & detail is probably not the best motivation for getting you to try a new recipe {am I right?}

An hour in Whole Foods later, I just decided to leave with what was in my basket {what was in my basket? who knows…}, and then I’d make do with what I had when I got home.

When I got home and emptied my grocery bag plus routed around my pantry & refrigerator, I had a can each of butternut squash puree, pumpkin puree, and sweet potato puree {still wasn’t sure what orange thing I’d be making}, some kale, fresh goat cheese from the farmer’s market, mushrooms, yellow bell peppers, red onions, garlic, and a box of whole wheat fillo dough.

After much deliberation, I just started cooking without much of a plan.

Then I thought that maybe I could just stuff the phyllo dough with some mixture, so that’s what I did.

Very very good idea. These things are rich & creamy with a light & crunchy outer shell.

You can make them as an entree or appetizer.

I like how it’s filled with veggies & lots of color inside.

I have a feeling that you will 100% agree with me and so will anyone else who has the pleasure of enjoying a bite of a goat cheese &  butternut squash {+ four more vegetables!!} triangles.
