  1. Start by preheating your oven to 200 degrees C. 
  2. Slice Butternut Squash in small cubes. When preheated, place in the oven with 5-6 garlic cloves, paprika, Chili flakes, salt and pepper. Let roast for about 20-30 minutes.
  3. While that’s roasting, chop your tomatoes and basil for the salad.
  4. Take your tuna and cube it and place in a bowl with 1 package of Taylor Farms Kale Mixture. Add sesame oil, soy sauce, sesame seeds, lemon juice and garlic powder. Set aside and let marinate.
  5. Time to assemble! Take out your roasted butternut squash and let cool for about 20 minutes, once that’s cooled, mix with 2 cubed avocados, the basil tomatoes and lemon. Serve with your choice of chip (we used pita chips!)

Slice your avocados in 1/2 to make “Boats”. Add in your tuna mixture and top with furikake. Get your forks, spoons and get ready to feast!
