From Veganomican, p. 152. We used jarred chestnuts instead of roasting our own. The original recipe also calls for 2 tsp thyme.

Recipe Ingredients for Caramelized Onion-Butternut Roast with Chestnuts

1 lb onions, sliced
1/3 c olive oil
1 lb chestnuts
2 lbs butternut squash, chopped
15 oz navy beans
1 tsp thyme
1 1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c vegetable broth
1/2 c dry white bread crumbs
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Caramelized Onion-Butternut Roast with Chestnuts

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.

  2. Place the onions and 1/3 c olive oil in a baking dish, tossing to coat the oinions with oil. Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring 3-4 times with a wooden spatula, until the onions are browned and sizzling. Remove from the oven and set aside.

  3. While the onions are roasting, coarsely chop the peeled and roasted chestnuts and add to the pan with roasted onions.

  4. Add the diced butternut squash, beans, thyme, coriander, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and broth to the baking pan, stirring so that the chestnuts, squash and beans are well coated. Tightly cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 35-45 min, until the squash and chestnuts are tender.

  5. Prepare the crumbs: Toss together the bread crumbs, oil, and sage in a bowl. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Remove the foil from the baking pan, top with the crumb mixture, and bake for another 15 minutes, until the top is lightly browned.
