We're not sure about you, but this Summer heat has us a little beat. Though we love a nice home cooked meal, sometimes it's easier to go the salad route.
Because it's important to keep our meals full of color, we used our Sous Vide Butternut Squash for this one. In addition, we added Organic Cranberries, Pumpkin seeds and a bit of Cauliflower rice. This gave us just the right amount of sweet combined with plenty of healthy fats. Speaking of those, we kept it simple with the dressing. A traditional Apple Cider Vinegar and Olive oil combination. The tartness of the ACV plays wonderfully with the Butternut Squash and Cranberries.
Then, there's the protein. A can of Tuna did the trick. That's right, this Sous Vide Recipe is for all the minimalists out there. It took us a mere 4 minutes to have this satisfying dinner on the table.
If we had to spend time cooking the Butternut Squash, we'd be in the kitchen a whole lot longer. In this case, all we had to do was grab our Straight from The Root Sous Vide Butternut Squash out of the fridge and open it.
That's why we've come to swear by Sous Vide veggies. They're pre-cooked, organic, and have a shelf life of 45 days in the fridge. This keeps prep time at home to a minimum.
In the midst of work deadlines and soccer practices, a little extra time saved in the kitchen can go a long way! There's a long list of things we need to catch up on, right?

The Sous Vide Difference
What's one thing we're proud to share about our Butternut Squash? Each package offers more nutrition than if you were to cook it any other way at home. (Baking, boiling and steaming can destroy up to 30% of this vegetable's nutrients.) That's the Sous Vide difference.
Slow-cooked under low temperatures, each vegetable keeps it's integrity. Then, there's the incredible flavor! Sous Vide vegetables marinate in their own juices providing a richness you won't forget.
To help give you an idea, we've included this video from one of our first Taste Testing events.
