Sweet Potato Squash Casserole - GF

2 large sweet potatoes
1 butternut squash
1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cinnamon sticks

Preheat oven to 375° and cut the sweet potatoes in half. Cut the butternut squash in half vertically and scrape out the seeds. Put the vegetables, cut side up, in a baking pan and bake, uncovered, until they are very soft, at least 1 1/2 hours. Scoop the potato and squash out of the skins, combine them, and mash until smooth. Put the orange juice, margarine, and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan and heat, reducing until it is about 1/4 cup syrup. Discard cinnamon sticks and stir orange syrup into the mashed vegetables.

Serves: 6   Time: 100 minutes

This is a refreshing Thanksgiving side. It is low fat at a holiday that is full of fat sides. This is a Food.com recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/sweet-potato-squash-casserole-267495.
