#5: Quinoa with Butternut Squash, Dried Cranberries and Pepitas
If you haven’t tried this amazing dish, you’ve got to this fall. It’s fantastic warm or chilled and pairs great with chicken or pork. It’s a little bit sweet, a little crunchy with a satisfying chewiness. This is great as a leftover lunch paired with the salad next on the list.
I’m always on the lookout for tasty ways to use kale. It’s a superfood packed with antioxidants and vitamins, but I’m not always a fan of the taste. Use the tenderest of baby kale in this recipe, grab some dried cranberries and almond flakes and have this whipped up in 10 minutes flat.
This twist on classic fudge is perfect for holiday gift giving and potluck sharing. It’s creamy, chewy and crunchy and goes oh-so-good with a cup of coffee. Grab a few simple ingredients: white chocolate, dried cranberries and pecans and enjoy.
These gluten and sugar free energy balls make the perfect snack and pair amazingly well with a sharp cheddar cheese (I know…not so paleo but I won’t tell if you don’t.)
You will never look at brittle the same way again. This amazing snack/dessert/comfort fall food is to die for. Grab almonds, cashews, dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds to make this quick and easy brittle.
