Calories 379 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 560 grams Butternut Squash diced into cubes
  • 30 milliliters Extra Virgin Olive Oil divided
  • 128 grams Quinoa uncooked
  • 296 milliliters Water
  • 168 grams Kale Leaves finely chopped
  • 15 milliliters Balsamic Vinegar
  • Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste
  • 56 grams Pumpkin Seeds
  • 61 grams Dried Unsweetened Cranberries

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 420ºF (216ºC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss the butternut squash in half the olive oil and spread across the sheet. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Combine the quinoa and water in a sauce pan. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer. Cover with a lid and let simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, or until all water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
  • Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add kale and saute until wilted (about 3 to 5 minutes). Turn off the heat.
  • Add the quinoa, roasted butternut squash and balsamic vinegar to the skillet then toss until well mixed. Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Divide into bowls and top with pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. Enjoy!
