Butternut Squash with Pomegranates & Goat Cheese

Butternut squash has really grown on me, I used to hate squashes. But I have noticed that when you roast the squash it takes on all new flavors. I found this recipe by Kelly from Eat The Gains. I love goat cheese, so I just figured it would add something extra to this roasted squash.

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Butternut Squash, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
  • 1 TBSP Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1/2 Cup Pomegranate Arils
  • 1/2 Cup Goat Cheese
  • Salt + Pepper

Dressing

  • 2 TBSP Lemon Juice
  • 1 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 TBSP Fresh Rosemary, chopped

Let’s Get Cooking

Preheat the oven to 375F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Toss the cubed squash with coconut oil + garlic powder + salt + pepper, make sure all is coated evenly. Spread out on the baking sheets and bake for about 30-40 minutes, stir once around 20 minutes. Make sure the squash is fork-tender before removing from heat.

Mix together the dressing ingredients and add salt + pepper to taste. Transfer the finished squash into a baking dish and stir in the dressing. Add in the pomegranate + goat cheese and mix to combine.

Then, enjoy!

“Chèvre Which Way but Loose Burger”

Time for another amazing burger recipe from the Bob’s Burgers Cookbook! The same old same old can get boring and who knows, an exciting burger may be just what you need to bring back the excitement; I don’t make the rules.

Ingredients

  • 1 4oz Chèvre Log, room temp. [goat cheese]
  • 1 tsp Chopped Fresh Sage
  • 2 tsp Chopped Fresh Oregano
  • 1 tsp Chopped Fresh Thyme
  • 1 tsp Chopped Fresh Rosemary
  • 1/4 Cup Mayo
  • 1 English Cucumber, half of it finely sliced, the other half diced
  • 2 Tomatoes, seeded & finely diced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 4 Vienna rolls, or any hamburger buns
  • 1/2 Red Onion, sliced

Let’s Get Cooking

Mix goat cheese + herbs + mayo. Mix until it has a cream cheesy consistency. Add in 1/4 cup of diced cucumber + tomatoes.

Add garlic into the ground beef and form into 4 patties. Season the patties with salt + pepper.

Cook burgers on a hot skillet until desired doneness. I prefer med-rare but do your thing!

BUILD YOUR BURGER: start with the bottom bun + burger + goat cheese spread + sliced red onion + sliced cucumber + top bun

This burger gets a little messy but trust me it’s totally worth it. The goat cheese spread is also an awesome leftover on a pita!

Made with Love,
