Butternut Squash Salad
5 min Prep, 15 min Cook
This Butternut Squash Salad recipe doesn’t contain any lettuce, but still packs in plenty of delicious greens along with some healthy fats. Butternut squash is a root vegetable that is high in Vitamin A and contains good levels of antioxidants and fibre, making it not only pretty to look at and flavoursome, but packed with goodness as well! This butternut squash salad is a winner whether you eat it on it’s own or as a side dish.
Start by steaming off all your vegetables, including the squash. This should take 5 - 10 minutes for the greens and 10 - 15 minutes for the squash depending how small you have chopped it.
Once steamed run the greens under cold water to stop the cooking process and place in a bowl.
Place your steamed squash in a pan with the coconut oil and place on a low heat for 5 - 10 minutes to sauté off and slightly caramelise.
After 5 minutes add your pine nuts and pumpkin seeds to the pan and gently toast - be careful not to burn them!
Simply add your squash, pine nuts and seeds to your greens, season all with salt and pepper, and stir gently.
Serve straight away or allow to cool and eat it later!
