Roasted Butternut Squash & Cabbage

  • 2 cups butternut squash, diced
  • 1 cup red cabbage, chopped
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (or 1 cup broth & 1 cup coconut milk or cream)
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF and prepare your vegetables.
  2. Add the squash and cabbage to a mixing bowl and toss with olive oil, cumin, curry powder, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  3. Transfer to a baking tray and roast for about 30-35 minutes or until squash is soft and lightly roasted.
  4. Meanwhile, begin your rice pilaf. In a medium pan, add a dash of olive oil and set the heat to medium-high.
  5. Add the onion and garlic clove and stir for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Then, add the rice and stir for 1 minute before adding the vegetable broth and turmeric along with another dash of salt and pepper.
  7. Cover with a lid and allow the rice to come to a boil.
  8. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally and add more water or broth if the rice begins to stick to the bottom too much.
  9. Serve the squash and cabbage over rice and enjoy!
