Roasted + Toasted Warming Veggie Salad
Health Highlights


3 cup Asparagus (ends trimmed)
3 tbsp Avocado oil
1 dash Salt (to taste)
681 gm Butternut squash (peeled; seeded; and cubed into 1-inch cubes )
2 tbsp Ghee
3 tbsp Maple syrup
1/2 tsp Cinnamon (ground)
1 cup Pecans
1 cup whole/halves Macadamia nuts, unsalted
2 tbsp Maca powder
1 cup Mulberries, dried (dried)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease the foil-lined baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of avocado oil.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine halved asparagus, 2 tablespoons of avocado oil, salt (to taste), and toss to combine. Place onto a foil-lined baking sheet, cut side down, and roast in the oven at 400 F for about 20-25 minutes. During the last 5-10 minutes of roasting, turn them over for even browning.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease the foil-lined baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of ghee.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine cubed butternut squash (peeled and seeded),1 tablespoon of ghee, maple syrup, and cinnamon, and toss to mix.
  5. Place butternut squash in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning once half-way through baking, until softened.
  6. To toast the mulberries, heat a small frying pan over medium-low heat and add the mulberries. Toast for about 5 minutes ,or until browned, stirring often to prevent burning. Once the mulberries are toasted let them cool completely to get crunchy.
  7. Coat the pecans and macadamia nuts in maca powder (*Optional: preferably, soak + sprout them prior - pecans take around 8 hours of soaking and macadamia nuts only 2-4 hours --> note this is only necessary if you find nuts hard to digest).
  8. In a large bowl, combine roasted asparagus, roasted butternut squash, maca-coated pecans + macadamia nuts, and toasted mulberries, and mix to combine.
