Recipe

Butternut squash, kale, and feta has to be one of the best combinations out there. Between the sweetness of the squash, earthiness of the kale, and creamy saltiness of the feta - something magical happens when you add all these delicious things to a skillet. Plus dinner is ready in about 15 minutes when paired with a nice whole grain like quinoa, wild rice, farro, or millet. The leftovers are also perfect for wraps, quesadillas, salads, and even added to a canned black bean soup.
