Spiralized Butternut Squash Toast with Goat Cheese and Pomegranate Seeds

Spiralizing is an awesome and entertaining way to get fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet without incorporating complicated and calorie-heavy ingredients. Anything that gets you excited about cooking is worth some buzz, and we have some "in-spiralizing" ideas to get you started on this spiral sensation!

Spiralized Butternut Squash Toast with Goat Cheese and Pomegranate Seeds Toasted bread is a great vehicle to get veggies and protein-packed ingredients, from avocado to almond butter, into your diet. Spiralizing butternut squash makes it easy to top toast, and paired with creamy goat cheese and fresh pomegranate seeds, it makes for a supreme salty-sweet combination. Feel free to substitute whole grain bread or sprouted breads for another option.

2 slices cinnamon-raisin bread 1 neck of butternut squash, peeled 1 ounce goat cheese 1 teaspoon agave syrup ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon pomegranate seeds

1. Spiralize the butternut squash on largest grate. In a microwave safe bowl, add butternut squash and ½ cup of water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave 5 minutes, or until squash is slightly tender. Drain from water and let dry on a paper towel.

2. Toast bread to desired doneness. Divide goat cheese and spread onto each toast.

3. Lightly toss butternut squash with agave and sprinkle with cinnamon. Top each toast with squash and sprinkle evenly with pomegranate seeds.
