Roasted Butternut Squash with Wilted Kale, Mushrooms and Garlic for #SundaySupper

I really love cooking this time of year. Summer has lots of beautiful colors and fresh ingredients, but fall and winter are just so full of flavor. The #SundaySupper team really knows how to play up the seasons’ best foods. Each week keeps getting better and better! Today we are “Squashin’ Winter” with some of our best squash recipes. Thanks to Heather from girliechef for hosting!

I adapted this recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash with Wilted Kale, Mushrooms and Garlic from a recipe I learned at work. It’s probably one of my favorite side dishes ever. It was written by one of our chefs, Anthony, who is actually about to make his way out to Orlando to open up the newest Publix Aprons Cooking School and be the resident chef! (Shout out to Anthony – congratulations and good luck!). Thanks for everything you’ve taught me and all your inspirational and delicious recipes! 

The original dish uses potatoes, but with butternut squash being in season I thought it would be an amazing substitute. Plus, it gives the dish a little more color and a lot of great flavor! If you’re still looking for recipes for your Thanksgiving dinner, Roasted Butternut Squash with Wilted Kale, Mushrooms and Garlic would be a great addition to your menu!

Roasted Butternut Squash with Wilted Kale, Mushrooms and Garlic for #SundaySupper




I served this alongside tangerine-ginger marinated salmon and cous cous. Whenever I have the chance to cook dinner for my roommates, I really want to make it something special. Nothing is ever boring and I don’t usually make the same thing twice, but with a side this good, it may be making another appearance on the dinner table again very soon. 

Roasted Butternut Squash with Wilted Kale, Mushrooms and Garlic for #SundaySupper



Roasted Butternut Squash with Wilted Kale, Mushrooms and Garlic
Serves 4-6


1 medium butternut squash, cut into 1-inch cubes
10-12 garlic cloves
olive oil
1 8 oz. package of wild mushrooms
1 15 oz. bag of kale
goat cheese (optional)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Arrange the cut-up butternut squash onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Roast for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the garlic cloves in a small saucepot and pour in enough olive oil so they are completely submerged. Cook on high for about 15 minutes. The garlic will turn a deep shade of tan and smell absolutely amazing.


Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour about 2 tbsp of the garlic oil. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add remaining garlic oil, as well as the garlic cloves, and add the kale. Cook until kale has wilted.

Add the roasted squash to the mushrooms and kale. Sauté until you see char marks on the squash. Sprinkle goat cheese on top if desired.
