ButtaNut Recipe

The recipe was created by my friend and a yoga student Maura Miles.

It is a perfect Fall dish – warming, nourishing, and soft. It is very simple and won’t take up too much of your time. Feel free to substitute spinach with bok choy or green beans! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!!
