Squash and sweet potato medley with sage and pine nuts

I’ve been making this a lot recently, it goes really nicely with fish, or veggie burgers, or alongside a mix of salads. This dish is packed full of fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K, beta carotene, B vitamins and magnesium. It’s also a great source of prebiotics (food that your gut bacteria love to munch on!). You could make it just with squash if you want it to be lower in carbohydrates/ are on the GAPS or SCD diet.

N.B: You’ll have powerful garlic breath after eating this dish, so keep some parsley on hand if you need to be social :).
