It's nice that you have a farmer's market in the Kentlands community that runs year-round. Who doesn't love a farmer's market?!

It is also nice that we have several restaurants near the farmers' market. So, you can combine a nice lunch with the farmers' market visit.

Recipe of the Week: 
From:  Minimilast Baker
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 8 slices
 
10-ingredient pizza that's perfect for late summer and fall. Butternut squash sauce adds a colorful, savory-sweet base, while broccolini, chickpeas, and onion add texture, fiber, and protein. A healthy, plant-based meal the whole family will enjoy.
Ingredients 
SAUCE 
  • 3 cups butternut squash (cubed*) 
  • 3 cloves garlic (whole // skin removed) 
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (divided) 
  • 1 pinch sea salt + black pepper 
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup 
PIZZA 
  • 1 1/2 cups broccolini (chopped // large stems removed) 
  • 1/2 cup red onion (chopped) 
  • 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas (rinsed and thoroughly dried // optional) 
  • 1 pinch sea salt + black pepper 
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 6 ounces store-bought pizza dough (I Love Trader Joe's Garlic & Herb or Whole Wheat)
  • 1 cup Butternut Squash Sauce (recipe above) 
  • 1/2 cup vegan parmesan cheese or store-bought vegan mozzarella cheese*
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and position a rack in the middle of the oven. 
  2. Add cubed butternut squash and peeled garlic cloves to a baking sheet and drizzle with half of the olive oil (1 Tbsp) and a pinch each salt and pepper. Toss to combine. 
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until all squash is fork tender.
  4. Transfer squash and garlic to a blender or food processor with remaining olive oil (1 Tbsp ) and maple syrup. Purée until creamy and smooth, adding more olive oil or a touch of water if it's too thick. The consistency should be creamy and spreadable (not pourable). 
  5. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Set aside. 
  6. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1 tsp oil, broccolini, onion, chickpeas (optional), salt and pepper, and oregano. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. Set aside. 
  7. Increase oven heat to 425 degrees F (218 C). 
  8. Roll out pizza dough into an even circle and transfer to a parchment-lined round baking sheet (or similarly-shaped object). 
  9. Top with ~ 1 cup sauce, veggies, and chickpeas. Sprinkle on a bit more oregano and vegan parmesan cheese or vegan mozzarella. 
  10. Transfer pizza to the oven, laying the pizza and parchment paper directly on oven rack (slide the baking sheet off so it can bake directly on the rack for a crispier crust). Bake for 13-18 minutes, or until crust edges are golden brown. 
  11. Slice and serve with remaining parmesan cheese, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes (optional).
