Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Carefully cut butternut squash lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and discard.
Drizzle butternut squash with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Place cut side down on parchment paper lined baking tray. Use a sharp knife to prick the skin of the squash 2-3 times. Bake squash 20-25 minutes, or until tender.
While butternut squash cooks, cook Dr. Praeger’s spinach cakes for 6 minutes, flip, and cook another 6 minutes. Remove from oven.
Add remaining olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add in garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until aromatic. Stir in carrots and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in kale and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Drizzle with lemon juice and season with oregano, salt, and pepper.
Cut spinach cakes into quarters and add to quinoa mixture.
Carefully spoon quinoa mixture into butternut squash. Enjoy!
