  • 431 g kobocha squash
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt, Coarse, Mediterranean
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 cups Kale, Raw
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup Raw Pepitas
  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp Pepper, Black


1 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2 Drizzle the squash with olive and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes or until golden brown, flipping half-way.
3 While the squash is roasting whisk together your dressing ingredients (mustard, almond milk, maple syrup, salt and pepper) and set aside.
4 Remove the squash and spread the kale on the baking sheet. Pop the kale into the oven and roast for 3 - 5 minutes, just wilting the kale slightly. Toss the squash with the kale and pomegranate, pepitas and drizzle on the dressing.
