These were a big hit at Christmas dinner, they were gone in minutes and even the kids were taking seconds. The store I went to didn't have Kabocha squash and only had 4 oyster mushrooms left, so I used butternut squash and some cremini mushrooms and it still turned out great! I'll try harder to find the correct ingredients next time, and there will definitely be a next time, because I'd really like to try it as written :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
The combination of ingredients was very new and delicious for me. I roasted the squash on Christmas Eve, to save time, which I wouldn't do again. They were amazing right out of the oven, but dried out compared to the mushrooms and green beans Christmas Day. Overall, I loved this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy, awesome and delicious item not reviewed by moderator and published
We really enjoyed this recipe. The store didn't have a kabocha squash or oyster mushrooms; I used butternut squash and portabella mushrooms. What a delicious treat! We are looking forward to making this dish again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this dish is my most favorite side dish! I tried this last year for Christmas and it was a hit!!! Thanks for sharing this with us! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My fam and I loved this recipe. I've never eaten Kabocha Squash before but, this dish made me a fan. Cutting the squash was quite the workout. It is quite hard but after the roasting process it was soft and sweet! The Haricots Verts roasted worked well for me. Great idea adding Brussels Sprouts! I'll do that next time. Highly recommend it, It's a great winter dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We made this dish to try it out a few days before our dinner party. The Kobocha Squash and Oyster Mushroom turned out very nice. We thought the Haricots Verts were a bit over roasted. So, we back the baking time off on them the next time and it was just right. We also added Brussels Sprouts to the mix the next time and that was quite good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked the combination of flavors. I made too much squash for the rest of the ingredients. I did not find oyster mushrooms so used shiitake instead. Still really good. The cooking times were fine item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great combinations of flavors; however, the haricots verts were cooked too long in my opinion. I like my veggies "al-dente" but these were far too over-cooked for my taste. Personally, I think I would steam them al-dente and then add them to the mix; You'll still get the roasted flavor from the other veggies but get the crisp-crunch from the beans. item not reviewed by moderator and published
YUMMY! Layers of flavor are beautifully pronounced with the unique combination of seasons in this recipe. I had never tried this type of squash or the oyster mushrooms and my family and I were blown away with how delicious and simple this was. I did find that the squash actually roasted more quickly than the beans so I just tossed my mushrooms back in with the beans and let them go a bit longer. Also looks great on the plate. item not reviewed by moderator and published
