  • While the squash is roasting, make your side dishes if desired.
    Quickly pickle your shallots: Place thinly sliced shallots in a small bowl with vinegar, sugar, and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir and let sit while you make the honeyed walnuts.
    Honey roast your walnuts: In a small non-stick pan, melt your butter along with the honey over medium heat. Add the walnuts and toss with the honey and butter until it bubbles and caramelizes. Remove the nuts from the pan and let cool completely.
