I always prefer a fresh fruit smoothie over the frozen fruit kind. This persimmon smoothie is no exception. With coconut milk, orange juice and ripe persimmon, this drink is earthy and sweet, spicy, and just slightly tart. Oh, and it's vegan!
Winter squash is such an amazing treat. The possibilities are almost limitless, such as raviolis, baked goods or desserts. But sometimes it's good to just keep it simple, yes? This recipe is just that, a simple side that is perfect for almost any meal.
Not only is this dish easy to prepare, but it's so hearty and versatile that every cook should know how to make it the traditional way. That said, we're going to cheat. We're going to bake it. This is probably illegal in Italy and some parts of New York. That's okay, because this risotto is delicious and worth a little hard time.
