Step 1: Ingredients:

1 Large Pomegranate

1Kg (2.2lb) Butternut Squash

1 Cup Quinoa, rinsed

2 Medium Avocados

1 Teaspoon Salt + some extra

1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

½ Lemon (optional)

For the Dressing (optional):

4 Teaspoons Honey

4 Teaspoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

3-4 Teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Step 2: Directions:

Rinse and cut the squash into bite size cubes. Get rid of the skin by trimming off each cube or peel it beforehand.

Transfer the squash onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle some olive oil over (about a tablespoon).

Bake in a preheated oven @ 200C/400F for 30-35 minutes or until soft throughout. 15 minutes into baking, open the oven and toss the squash pieces around (use a fork or spatula).

Meanwhile: Rinse quinoa and transfer it in a small/medium sauce pan. Cook according to the package information (I use 1 part quinoa, 3 parts water).

Deseed the pomegranate and dice avocados (first cut in half, remove the stone, scoop out the flesh and dice).

Prepare the honey dressing (optional) by mixing 4 teaspoons of honey with 4 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 3-4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil.

Once the squash is cooked throughout and has nice brown color, take it out from the oven.

Transfer onto a serving plate/bowl or serve on a baking tray (this way the salad stays warm for longer). Throw in pomegranate seeds, quinoa & diced avocado.

Squeeze half a lemon over (optional) or drizzle with honey dressing (optional).

Serve as a starter, main or a side dish.
