  • 1 pound diced butternut squash about 1-inch
  • 9 ounces brussels sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 2 large carrots rolled cut or roughly chopped
  • 1 medium red onion chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 small bunches red grapes enough for 4 small clusters
  • 2 tablespoon reduced balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth or low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup polenta
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces goat cheese log not pre-crumbled


  • micro greens or chopped parsley


  • Preheat your oven to 400°
  • In a large bowl add the diced butternut squash, Brussels sprout halves, chopped carrots, onion and broccoli with 2 tablespoons olive oil and a couple pinches of kosher salt and black pepper.
  • Roast on the middle rack for 20 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.
  • Meanwhile, spray grapes with olive oil spray. Once the vegetables have roasted, make room on the sheet pan for the grapes. Continue to roast for and additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the grapes start to burst.
  • Remove the medley to the same bowl from earlier and toss with balsamic vinegar and honey.
  • While the grapes are roasting with the vegetables, make the goat cheese polenta.
  • Start by heating 2 cups of whole milk with 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth to a boil, stirring often. Continue to stir while pouring in the coarse grits and 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
  • Once the grits start to swell and absorb the liquids, stir in the goat cheese. Once the grits have absorbed all of the liquids and are creamy, divide among bowls and top with the roasted medley, micro greens and more black pepper to taste.
