  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 3 tablespoons Navitas Naturals Pomegranate Powder

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon dijon mustard

  • Sea salt and ground black pepper

  • 6 cups purple kale, stemmed and chopped

  • 2 medium acorn squash

  • ¼ cup coconut oil, divided

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh sage

  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 3 cups cooked red quinoa

  • ½ cup fresh pomegranate seeds

  • ¼ cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds

  • 1 sweet apple (such as Fuji or Gala), chopped

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, maple syrup, pomegranate powder, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, ½ teaspoon sea salt, and ½ teaspoon ground black pepper until completely emulsified. Toss as much of the dressing as desired with the kale.

Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 425° F. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Rub the interior cavity with coconut oil, and season with salt and pepper.

Place the squash flesh-side down on a baking sheet, and roast in the oven for 30 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and let the squash cool for a moment.

Melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a small skillet. When hot, stir in the sage and cook for two minutes. Add the sage and the hot oil to a food processor. Scoop out the flesh from the cooked acorn squash and into the food processor as well. Process the ingredients into a thick puree, then add the almond milk, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper. Puree again until the squash is a smooth consistency.

To assemble, divide the dressed kale amongst 4 bowls. Spoon in the squash puree on one side, followed by the quinoa on the other. Sprinkle the bowls with pomegranate seeds, sunflower seeds, and apples. Enjoy warm or cold!
