    1. Preheat the Oven:
      Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).

    Pro Tips
    • Spelt Texture: Keep an eye on the spelt grains; they should be tender but slightly chewy. Avoid overcooking for the perfect texture.
    • Mushroom Roasting: Ensure the mushrooms are spread in a single layer on the baking sheet for even roasting and a delightful caramelization.
    • Flavorful Garnish: Enhance the presentation and taste by adding a handful of toasted pine nuts or a drizzle of balsamic glaze before serving.
    • Creative Variations: Experiment with different types of winter squash like butternut or acorn squash for unique flavors and colors.
