I love eating all types of squash in the Fall- spaghetti, butternut, acorn & delicata is especially one of my favorites! When roasted, it gets creamy and sweet, and how cute does it looked when sliced?!!

This colorful and healthy power bowl is packed with quinoa, delicata squash, dried cranberries, nuts & seeds then tossed in an easy homemade vinaigrette dressing.

This bowl can be eaten at anytime during the day from lunch to dinner(or a side dish!) and it’s definitely meal prep-friendly!

In just a few easy steps, you can create this delicious and nutritious power bowl. Start by cooking your quinoa and roasting your squash.

While the quinoa and squash are cooking, whisk together your dressing ingredients. This simple homemade dressing uses only a few pantry staples,  it’s sweet & tangy and goes perfectly with the Fall flavors in this bowl!

Assemble your bowl by mixing the quinoa with the fruit, nut & seed mix. We love using Zego Foods premade snack mix to keep this recipe super easy, but you can also buy the ingredients separately(dried cranberries & seeds) if you want to do it that way.

Add slices of delicata squash and drizzle with your dressing. That’s it!
