Spicy Butternut Squash, Kale & Chickpea Casserole Is a Veggie Lover's Go-To Fall Recipe

With a simple chipotle sauce, you can transform kale, chickpeas and butternut squash into a flavorful vegetarian and vegan meal. If you're a meat lover, serve as a side dish with the protein of your choice. 

You'll need:

  • 1 large bunch kale, chopped fine
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 butternut squash, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds

Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • pinch red pepper flakes (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all the sauce ingredients. Mix well.
  2. Add the butternut squash and chickpeas to the sauce. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Pour onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Cook in a preheated 425-degree F oven about 35-40 minutes, or until squash is tender. Stir the squash and chickpeas halfway through the cooking time. 
  3. Remove the squash and chickpeas from the oven and stir in the chopped kale. Taste and reseason with salt and pepper, if needed. Garnish with the pumpkin seeds and serve.
