Butternut and Kale Saute (recipe)

Roasted Butternut and Kale Saute 

Happy VeganMoFo!!! I’m excited that ‘MoFo is here and also completely overwhelmed by it already. I had planned on getting at least 1/3 of my post done over the past 2 weeks but wonderful and crazy things got in the way so I’m just going to wing it. Hopefully things will calm down this week and I can prepare some things in advanced.

I’ve decided to run with a theme this year. The whole month of  VeganMoFo for me will be all about Pumpkins and Winter Squash. Everything I post will contain either/or. Its a lot of pressure to come up with that many pumpkin recipes but I think I can pull it off. I have a bunch of ideas and I bought every type of pumpkin and winter squash I saw at Whole Foods yesterday.

I’m starting off VeganMoFo Day 1 with a recipe I made the other day for a butternut and kale saute. I made this earlier in the day and ended up nibbling on it for the rest of the day. We were lucky that there was some left for our actual dinner which it was intended for!

Roasted Butternut and Kale Saute

6-8 cups of medium diced butternut squash
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400˚. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Spread onto a parchment covered baking sheet tray and roast 25-30 minutes or until butternut squash is easily pierced with a fork or knife.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pinch of  red pepper flakes
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 bunch of kale, stems removed torn into bite sized pieces
1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons tamari

Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the red pepper flakes and garlic and saute for 1 minutes. Toss in the kale and cook for 5 minutes. Add the already roasted butternut squash to the pan along with the pecans. Saute for 2 minutes to combine all the ingredients then add the tamari and cook 3-5 minutes more. Serve!

      Awesome site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!

      You dont know anything, do you? If anybody is arrogant, it is you. First of all, I dont care how he talks. So acting like we all are like that is arrogant. SECOND, English is taught in WAY more countries and anybody with business sense would know speaking in gibberish isn’t as good as English. Good day sir.

    Jenna, I’m excited to read your upcoming winter squash posts, as it’s not my favorite vegetable. (!!) I enjoy it some ways, but not others . . . I can’t wait to hear all sorts of new ideas!

      I tried this for lunch today and served it over spinach pasta. It was great! I just added a touch more of tamari.
