i love fall flavors, so i thought it would be fun to revisit the pairing of lentils and squash. this spicy squash salad from smitten kitchen has all the colors and depth of flavor that i love about autumnal dishes. although deb omitted the arugula, her idea to roast squash seeds struck me as brilliant (although when you think about it, it makes so much sense). the smoky paprika, cumin and goat cheese sound beyond delicious. you can also make this salad with pumpkin – and deb says you could swap feta for the goat cheese – so there’s tons of wiggle room to enjoy this salad (including by adding quinoa to bump up the protein levels).
