Ingredients

  • 2 cups butternut squash cubed in small ½ inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon sage minced finely
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts quartered
  • 1 bag Path of Life Organic Quinoa & Brown Rice
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • cup goat cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400. Prepare a lined/greased baking sheet.
  • Cut butternut squash into small pieces. In a bowl, toss the butternut squash with 1 tbsp olive oil and chopped sage to coat all of the pieces. Lay the squash flat on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  • While squash is baking, cut brussels sprouts and prepare other ingredients.
  • Toss brussels sprouts with remaining 1 tbsp olive oil.
  • After squash has baked for 15 minutes, push to one side of the baking sheet. Add brussels sprouts to the same pan. Return to the oven for additional 10 minutes.
  • Once veggies are done roasting, heat Path of Life Quinoa & Brown Rice Mix per directions on the bag. In a big bowl, toss together rice mixture, cooked veggies, dried cranberries, pepper, balsamic vinegar and pecans. Add to a serving dish. Top with goat cheese + serve.
