Ingredients

4 cups spinach
1/2 of a butternut squash (save the rest as a side dish with your dinner)
1/4 cup steamed quinoa
1/2 cup grilled tofu
1/2 a pomegranate
1/4 cup red cabbage

  1. Peel the squash and remove the seeds. Dice the flesh into 1/2-inch-thick pieces and boil 15-20 minutes or until soft. Your local grocery store may have premade butternut squash this time of year, so check the warm food section. Let the quinoa cook at the same time per instructions on the package.
  2. Slice tofu into 1-inch-thick cubes and set aside.
  3. Cut pomegranate in half and peel the membrane away, collecting half a pomegranate's worth in seeds.
  4. Combine all of the ingredients into a large salad bowl and toss with the dressing of your choice.
