Everyday Food Pork Kebabs with Roasted Squash and Sauteed Greens
This recipe has 10 ingredients. It takes 45 minutes of total time, 15 minutes of which is active, and makes 4 servings. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients at my local grocery store and made no modifications or substitutions to the ingredients. Make sure to remove all the excess fat and silver skin before preparing the kebabs or the taste will not be as good. Additionally, watch the butternut squash and turn them during the baking time or they will begin to burn. I found that my arugula took slightly longer than the three minutes suggested by the recipe to completely wilt. Also make sure to salt the greens or they will lack flavor.
My two boys loved these kebabs. They were very popular with all members of my household and were very kid friendly. I liked that this recipe included vegetable sides, so there were no other dishes that had to be served along with it. Having everything included in one recipe saved me time and money and the arugula was a nice change of pace from my family's normal vegetable routine. Overall, a recipe that I would make again in the future and a great way to expose kids to a larger variety of foods.
