Roasted Butternut Squash, Feta & Quinoa Salad – I am so obsessed with this summery salad right now! Not only does it taste sensational, it’s literally bursting with antioxidant vitamins and minerals that will nourish every cell of your body and make you glow from the inside out! If there is such a thing as a ‘super food salad’, I think this counts as one!
Ingredients (serves 4)
160g Quinoa (uncooked)
½ Butternut Squash, peeled & cubed
50g Feta cheese
4 tbp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
½ red chilli, finely chopped
1tbsp of finely chopped parsley
Seeds of ½ pomegranate
2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
Assemble the butternut squash cubes on an oven tray, drizzle with olive oil and roast in a pre- heated oven (180 degrees) for approx. 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle over with the chilli, garlic and pumpkin seeds and return to oven for a further 10 minutes.
Meanwhile cook the quinoa in seasoned water (2 parts water to 1 part quinoa) for 15-20 minutes and allow to cool.
Get a large salad bowl and tip in the quinoa & butternut squash, pour over the chilli & garlic infused oil from the baking tray along with the seeds and mix well. Add in the crumbled feta, parsley and pomegranate and stir well to combine.
Delicious served warm or cold as a full or side dish. Enjoy!
