Warm Butternut Squash and Kale Salad


This recipe actually once transformed me from being a non-kale-liker to a kale-lover. Worth a try then, isn’t it?

Warm Butternut Squash and Kale Salad with Quinoa

1 Butternut Squash (small, about 1 lb) peeled and cut into 0.5 inch chunks
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

1 bunch of Kale

0.5 cup Quinoa

2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
2 tbls Olive Oil
0.5 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1-2 Garlic Clove(s)
Salt and Pepper

Optional: Pine Nuts and/or Goat Cheese


1. Preheat oven to 225C/400F.

2. Toss squash chunks into a bowl with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread on a baking sheet and bake in oven for 15-20 min (until tender and slightly browned).

3. Remove the thick stems from the kale and chop/tear into smaller pieces. Gradually add the kale into a large skillet over medium-high heat, stir constantly until kale is bright green (about 5 min).

4. Cook Quinoa to preferred tenderness.

5. Combine all dressing ingredients.

5. Mix baked squash, warmed kale and cooked quinoa into a large bowl and toss with dressing. Garnish with pine nuts and/or goat cheese if preferred.

    Det låter jättegott, ska prova det till helgen tänkte jag :)

    En frÃ¥ga bara, 400 celsius är 752 farenheit och 225 farenheit är 107 celsius – vilket är det? Eller det kanske inte spelar nÃ¥gon roll?

      Auch ich bin in diesem Jahr der Messe fern geblieben, da ich &#22f0;kurz8ristig” (zwei Wochen vor der Messe) kein Zimmer mehr bekam. Obwohl die Online-Branche unaufhaltsam und damit auch der Zuspruch wächst, ist die Messe in Köln längst am Limit angelangt!Die Veranstalter sollten ernsthaft darüber nachdenken eine andere Meesestadt zu suchen die Grenzen sind in Köln erreicht!

      Det går jättebra att skippa quinoan. Jag stoppade i det för att få lite protein i maten men om du ska äta en köttbit så spelar det ju ingen roll :) Hoppas ni gillar det!
