Meatless Monday – Honey Glazed Winter Squash with Pomegranate

I spotted delicata squash at the market the other day and realized it was time to give this dish another try. This recipe combines some of my favorite flavors, rich and earthy winter squash, roasted with shallots, then tossed with toasted pine nuts and pomegranate seeds and finely, drizzled with a sweet and tangy cider vinegar and honey reduction. This time I layered it over some baby kale. Yum!

    I love pomegranate, whether in a salad or a yogurt. I have never had it in a warm dish though, so I will give your recipe a try. Thank you for sharing 😊
