Ingredients

1 small acorn squash (preferably 1 pound), seeded

1 small butternut squash, peeled and seeded 

1/4 kabocha squash, seeded 

2 teaspoons honey 

1/4 cup olive oil, divided 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup Brussels sprouts 

1/4 cup pepitas 

2 tablespoons pumpkin seed oil 

2 tablespoons lemon juice 

4 cups arugula leaves 

1 tablespoon pomegranate seeds 

Shaved Parmesan cheese, for garnish 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Slice acorn squash into rounds about 1 inch thick. Slice butternut squash into about 1-inch chunks. Slice kabocha squash into half-moon slices, also about 1 inch thick. Spread the squash out onto a sheet tray, making sure they are in a single layer and slightly spaced out; use two sheet trays if necessary. Drizzle all the squash with the honey and half the olive oil, season with salt and pepper and roast until soft but not falling apart, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Core Brussels sprouts and cut into quarters. Spread them out on a sheet pan, drizzle with remaining olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until slightly tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Spread pepitas out on a sheet tray. Sprinkle with salt and lightly toast until they pop and are a light brown, 6 to 10 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the pumpkin seed oil and lemon juice. Lightly dress the arugula leaves with the mixture.
  6. To assemble, place dressed arugula on a large platter, then arrange squash and Brussels over the arugula. Sprinkle with pepitas and pomegranate seeds and garnish with shaved Parmesan.
