I’m a New Yorker! Well, at least I’ve been one for the past 20 years! And I couldn’t be a “real” New Yorker if I didn’t appreciate pizza. So, appreciate pizza I do. This autumn-inspired, Meatless Monday-friendly version is no exception! Not only are these scrumptious slices loaded with seasonal farmers’ market goodies, they’re full of good-for-your gut benefits. (As luck would have it, “good gut health” is this month’s Recipe Redux theme, too!) This recipe is rich in prebiotics—which feed friendly bacteria in the gut.

seasonal butternut squash hash browns

It’s a colorful and scrumptious twist on hash browns. Make it for breakfast and pair it with eggs. Think beyond breakfast, too. Serve it as an any day (or Meatless Monday!) side. If you have leftovers, they reheat just fine. Toss with pasta and goat cheese for an intriguing entrée. Or stuff them into tortillas along with refried vegetarian beans and avocado for a seasonal burrito. Enjoy! Why it’s better for you? Lots of nutrient variety and fiber!
