1] Peel + chop sweet potato + butternut quash into bite sized pieces. Then, dice the yellow onion + chop/break apart half of the head of cauliflower
2] Add 1 tsp olive oil + yellow onion to a large pot. With the burner on low, cook the onion + garlic for about 1 minute before adding the sweet potato, butternut squash, + cauliflower.
