½ small butternut squash, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, peeled and halved

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

½ teaspoon chili powder

¼ teaspoon ground cumin

¼ onion, finely chopped

plum tomato, finely chopped

½ jalapeno, finely chopped

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

½ lime, juiced

½ teaspoon dried oregano

2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped

¼ cup pomegranate seeds

Sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Your favorite tortilla chips or cut veggies for serving


1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.

2. On a baking sheet, toss the butternut squash and garlic with 1 tablespoon olive oil, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to taste. Roast for about 20-30 minutes, occasionally flipping to ensure even cooking. The squash should be soft but not falling apart. Remove from the oven and cool.

3. Once cool, mince the roasted garlic cloves and add to a large bowl with the roasted squash.

4. Combine the remaining olive oil, red wine vinegar, lime juice, and

oregano in a bowl.

5. Add the onion, tomato, and jalapeno to the roasted squash and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Toss to coat.

6. Add the parsley and pomegranate, then mix gently.

7. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or cut veggies.


You can dice the whole squash, double the olive oil and seasonings, and roast. Then set half aside until ready to use.
