Butternut Squash Bowl

I just love bowl dinners and here's a great vegetarian one. I was at Costco and saw a package of nice butternut squash cubes. As I was driving home I figured out this yummy non-meat meal. I used a rice mix from Trader Joe's which I love called Brown Rice Medley. You could sub another grain or orzo and it would also taste wonderful I'm sure.

Preheat oven 425

1 pkg of cubed butternut squash
1 cup Trader Joe's Brown Rice Medley
some olive oil
2 oz crumbled bleu cheese
1/2 bag spinach chopped

Toss butternut squash cubes with olive oil, salt and pepper and spread out on cookie sheet. Roast 40 minutes. Meanwhile make 1 cup of the Brown Rice Medley. When squash and rice are ready, chop 1/2 bag of spinach into a large bowl, top with hot rice and sprinkle 2 oz of crumbled bleu cheese over that. Drizzle a little olive oil over that and top with roasted squash. Toss and serve.

  1. Years ago, I would have had no interest in this dish, but it was great-- especially the pieces of squash that were browned.
