Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. creamy almond butter
  • 2 Natural Delights Medjool dates pitted
  • Juice of 1 large orange might need 2 large oranges if your almond butter brand is a thick consistency
  • Pinch orange zest if desired
  • 1 head flat dinosaur kale finely chopped and ends trimmed
  • 1 small head purple cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 3 scallions thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. raw walnuts
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Roast the squash for 40 minutes or until the squash is fork tender. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Then peel the skin and cut the squash with a sharp knife into 1/2 inch pieces.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the creamy almond butter, Medjool dates, orange juice, sea salt and pepper to taste in a small food processor or high speed blender and puree until smooth. Add a pinch of orange zest, if desired. Note that my almond butter was very liquidy- so if your almond butter is really thick, you may need more orange juice to get a drizzle consistency. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the kale, cabbage, red onion, bell pepper, scallions, walnuts and parsley. Add the roasted squash on top. Drizzle the Medjool date drizzle on top, season to taste with sea salt and pepper and serve immediately.
