Sage Wisdom

By Yonni @vegandthecity
Sage WisdomSage is a versatile herb, native to the Mediterranean, and is easily detected by its soft, pale green leaves.  Sage is a member of the mint family with other flavorful cousins like lavender, oregano and basil.  In addition to being an ingredient in so many dishes, it is also used to aid in digestive issues, and to support those battling Alzheimer's and depression.  Sage has also known to be helpful to those struggling with type 2 diabetes patients in lowering both blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
When I got my bundle of fresh sage from Butterfield Market, I sought out some butternut squash as a perfect accompaniment. 
I set my oven to roast at 400 degrees and then washed the squash and sliced it, vertically, in half.
I took a few pats of vegan butter and set them into the cavity of the squash once I removed the seeds, and some along the length of it as well.  Then I sprinkled on some cinnamon and kosher salt, and topped everything with a chiffonade of fresh sage - nearly 2 tablespoons.
Sage WisdomI popped the squash into the oven in a pyrex baking dish and left it in to cook until the squash was fork tender and the sage was good and crispy.

Once cooled, I sliced it into 1" pieces and served.  There were no leftovers...
