Fall is in the air!

The cooler temperatures this week definitely inspired this post.  I wanted to find a way to incorporate a lot of the wonderful fall flavors in-season produce has to offer, and while browsing Epicurious, I stumbled upon this gem of a dish: Wild Rice with Butternut Squash, Leeks and Corn.

This definitely fit the bill.  The squash is roasted to bring out its rich, nutty flavor, and the rice worked well to bring all of the vegetables together.

Not only would this make a wonderful side dish, it would also be great solo, especially if you subbed the wild rice for quinoa.
