Winter Squash with Raisins, Almonds and Caramelized Onions

A riff on the Sephardic Moroccan dish called cassolita, this elegant skillet-cooked side is a delicious interplay of sweet, savory and warm spices, an unmistakably North African flavor profile. And the contrast in textures—silky squash, plump raisins and toasted almonds—adds even more layers of complexity. All of the cooking is done in a skillet on the stovetop, so this is an excellent dish to prepare during times when the oven is in high demand.

Don’t be shy about browning the onions. Allow them to cook until they are deeply caramelized and take on a rich, bittersweet taste. Their deep, allium savoriness and jammy sweetness are foundational flavors in the dish.
