This peanut sauce is SO good!! Especially with the spiced butternut squash and the crunch of the veggies and peanuts. I recommend doubling the sauce recipe.


  • 4 cups of shredded purple cabbage

  • 2 cups of cooked quinoa

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 medium butternut squash

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon of curry powder

  • ½ teaspoon of chili powder

  • Crushed peanuts

  • Cilantro

Peanut Sauce:

  • ¼ cup of natural peanut butter

  • ¼ cup of warm water

  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons of rice vinegar

  • 1 small clove of grated garlic

  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger

  • ½ teaspoon of agave

  • ¼ teaspoon of red pepper flakes


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Peel, remove seeds, and dice squash. Place diced butternut squash on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt, curry powder, and chili powder. Give it a toss to ensure that all of the cubes are coated with the seasoning. Arrange the squash cubes in an even layer on a baking sheet. Roast, turning them halfway through, for 30-35 minutes until they are lightly golden brown on the edges or until a knife inserted in one of the cubes comes out easily.

Add Peanut Sauce ingredients to a blender, food processor or bowl and blend or mix until smooth.

Add shredded purple cabbage, quinoa, red pepper, and butternut squash to a bowl and top with peanut sauce, crushed peanuts and cilantro.
