Savory Butternut Lentils

Can you tell that I’m obsessed with both butternut squash and kale? Another most satisfying recipe with some of my favorite ingredients ensues…

You need:

1 cup brown or green lentils, cooked (about 1/3cu dry)
1/2 large butternut squash
Coconut oil spray
Fresh rosemary
Crushed raw walnuts, handful
Shallots 2
Garlic 3 cloves, crushed
Yellow bell pepper 1
Chinese eggplant 1/2 large
Dinosaur kale 1/2 large bunch

optional garnishes:
1/2 lemon juiced
Fresh cilantro
Drizzle of olive oil

Preheat oven to 400. Chop squash and shallots into 1 inch cubes and place on cookie sheet with coconut oil spray and fresh chopped rosemary. Bake for about 15minutes. Sprinkle crushed walnut on top and bake another 15 minutes, let cool.

You could be cooking your lentils while these are baking, about 30min simmer.

On the stove, stir fry the garlic, eggplant, yellow peppers, and dino kale until just cooked.

Combine/toss all in a large bowl with optional garnishes as desired. Serve warm and be nourished!
