Lamb and Butternut Chili

1 large butternut squash, peeled and cubed

1 Tb olive oil

Preheat oven to 450°.  In a bowl, toss butternut with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Place on baking sheet and roast 30-45 minutes turning occasionally until browned on edges.  Set aside.


1 Tablespoon olive oil

1 medium onion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1” fresh ginger, peeled and grated

2 lbs ground lamb

1 heaping Tablespoon Basics Fuirst Mid-East Peace Mix

1 28-oz box chopped tomatoes

Kosher salt and pepper

Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over a medium flame.  Add onion, garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant and onions begin to soften, about 7 minutes. Add ground lamb and cook until no longer pink, breaking apart as you go along.  Drain off fat. Stir in Basics Fuirst Mid-East Peace Mix.  Add diced tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes uncovered to combine flavors.   Remove pot from flame and mix in cooked butternut squash.  Salt and pepper to taste.
