Butternut Squash Breakfast Bowl (aka Fall in a Bowl!).

So the arrival of cooler mornings has me craving cooler weather foods...or, in terms others can understand...PUMPKIN (duh...), root veggies, and, the star of this DELISH brekkie recipe: butternut squash. This simple creation started out as a "I really need to use that butternut squash in the fridge, so I'm gonna make breakfast out of it," thing...and quickly turned into a new fall breakfast fave. Hope you guys enjoy it too!

      Butternut Squash Breakfast Bowl. 

                            I know.

2. 15 drops vanilla stevia
3. 1/3 cup tvp granules
4. One packet stevia
5. 1/4 tsp cinnamon

2. Toast tvp in a skillet over medium heat, after mixing it with stevia packet and cinnamon. Cook, stirring regularly, until toasted.
