Meatless Monday – Butternut Squash with Kale Quinoa Sauté




Happy Meatless Monday!!! I saw a recipe on MindBodyGreen for a warm kale quinoa salad and was inspired to mix it up and do my own!

Squash is a delicious, satisfying comfort food; combined with kale, quinoa and warm spices it makes a perfect meatless meal.

This recipe is simple and makes a perfect Tuesday lunch.

  • Kale one pound roughly (chopped)
  • Onion – one medium (diced)
  • Peppers (your choice) chopped

  • Olive oil
  • Smoked paprika – 1/2 tablespoon
  • Cumin 1/2 tablespoon
  • Ginger – one tablespoon (grated)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Quinoa- one cup cooked


  1. Place squash on a cookie sheet- dust with paprika, cumin and coat with olive oil.
  2. Roast squash at 350° for 25 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet and sauté onions and garlic over medium heat until translucent.
  4. Add peppers and sauté for another five minutes.
