3-4 delicata squashes
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
5oz baby spinach
1/4 Cup roasted pumpkin seeds

Toss in olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Spread in one layer on a sheet pan. Roast for 30-40 minutes and turn every 10-15 minutes.
2. While the squash roasts, remove pomegranate seeds.
3. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, balsamic, mustard, salt and pepper.

Serve as a side dish or top with cooked protein like grilled chicken or broiled salmon for a complete meal.
