One of the reasons I love this recipe is that it’s bursting with familiar flavors – who doesn’t love a Caesar salad? You can make this recipe with any solid vegetable, like Brussels sprouts or carrots, but I’m choosing fennel here simply because it’s one of my favorites. A traditional Caesar salad has no vegetables, so this version is a great way to make the dish more vegan. If you have leftover granola, snack on it throughout the day.

Ricotta Stuffed Squash is a lovely dish to prepare when you entertain at home, and you can easily prepare and plate it ahead of time. Delicata squash and ricotta make a delicious pairing, which we love to eat when it’s cold outside. This dish offers a new way to experience this flavor profile.
