Cool-weather produce—namely butternut squash, carrots, and apples—marries beautifully with vegetarian sausages in this easy dinner. A finishing sauce of grainy mustard and maple syrup unifies all the elements and is great for drizzling over the food or serving as a dip. Go for precut butternut squash to keep prep fast and easy. And change up the herbs according to your preference; sage or rosemary sprigs would also be delicious. If you have leftovers, try chopping up the sausages and apples and then warming everything in a skillet; top with a poached egg (or not) for a delicious breakfast.
