Nothing better to start anew and kick off November than with a nice, wholesome veggie-packed meal before I start baking Thanksgiving pies, eh?

Couple things about this recipe…it’s a relatively high-prep recipe so I’s recommend doing some prep in advance. When I do my weekly cook=up for lunch I tend to have a lot of this stuff around (that’s actually how this little guy came to be…just another one of my “whatever-let’s-just-throw-all-my-leftovers-in-a-pot-and-see-what-happens” dealios).


  • 3 delicata squashes, de-seeded and diced
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 t chili powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 c water
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t chili powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 c kale, torn up onto pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 c mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • pinch salt
  • 1- 2 c quinoa, cauliflower rice, or white rice
  • 1-2 c prepared salsa
  • 3 ripe avocados, mashed


Step 1

Place the delicata squashes into a pot with the cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt, and water. Bring to a good simmer, cover, and cook for an hour. Mash up the cooked squash, remove from heat, and set aside. Meanwhile, toss the potatoes with 1 T olive oil, chili powder, and salt and spread on a baking pan. Roast at 350 for 50-60 minutes. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, place the kale, bell pepper, onion, and leeks with the last bit of oil and salt. Toss to coat. Set aside Whew! Finally ready to assemble this bad boy… In a large baking dish, first spread half the cooked quinoa on the bottom. Then cover with half the mashed delicata squash. Then spread the roast sweet potatoes. Then spread/dollop the mashed avocado. Spread the other half of the quinoa. Then the other half of the delicata squash (it’s OK if layers are thin) Spread a layer of salsa, Finally, spread the veggies. Cover and bake at 375 for 45 minutes. Uncover, raise the temperature to 425, and bake for 15 minutes more. Serve and enjoy!
