Ingredients :

  • 3 tablespoons ghee
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon of ginger, minced
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts, cut in halves
  • 2 1/2 cups of homemade vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage

Directions :

Melt ghee in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until tender, about 6 minutes. Add ginger and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add butternut squash, brussels sprouts, thyme and sage. Stir to coat. Add 1/2 cup vegetable broth and wine.

Transfer orzo to large bowl. Stir in vegetable mixture, then Parmesan and season with salt and pepper.
