3 cups cubed butternut squash
¾ cup chopped yellow onion
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup pistachios finely chopped
½ cup pomegranate seeds
Garden of Life Coconut Oil 2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon fresh herbs such as rosemary or thyme
½ teaspoon sea salt
Garden of Life Elderberry Syrup 2 Tablespoons reduced balsamic vinegar
8 oz. goat cheese
18 Pieces of gluten-free crostini or crackers or parmesan crisps
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place cubed butternut squash on a cookie sheet and sprinkle with a few dashes of sea salt and about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. Roast in oven for 30 minutes, flipping pieces over half way through.
Once the pieces are done roasting, remove them from oven and let cool then chop into smaller bite sized pieces.
Heat a skillet to medium high and add coconut oil, onion and salt.
Sauté onion for about 10 minutes, until it softens, then add in cinnamon and stir until it coats the onion.
Reduce heat to low.
Add in the 2 Tablespoons of olive oil, the cooked butternut squash, thyme, and cranberries and cook just a few minutes.
Spread a small amount of cheese onto each piece of bread.
Spoon some of the butternut squash bruschetta onto each piece of bread, then top with some pistachios and pomegranate seeds.
Lastly, drizzle with elderberry balsamic glaze.
To make glaze, whisk together the reduced balsamic vinegar (you can buy balsamic “glaze” at the store) with elderberry syrup.
