1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed (seeds removed)
1 tbsp avocado oil
1 leek, sliced
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
1 tsp cinnamon (or more to taste)
2 medjool dates
1/4 cup craisins
2 tbsp fresh rosemary
1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional
1 tbsp silan (date syrup, alternatively use maple syrup or honey)
Salt and pepper to taste .
In a medium pot, boil squash until soft enough to be pierced with a fork. Do not overcook!
In the meantime, heat oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add leeks and sauté until softening. Add apple and cinnamon and sauté until squash is cooked. Add squash to the mixture and gently mix.
Add dates, craisins and rosemary to the bowl and continue to cook for another few minutes. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle silan on top.
This can be served as is or over rice or over quinoa (which is a protein for a more complete meal).
