Kale & Butternut Squash Saute

Melt coconut oil over medium heat in a sauté pan.  Add butternut squash cubes, and cook until soft through middle-this will take about 15 minutes.  Be sure to stir, so that the squash gets crispy but not burnt on the outside.  Sprinkle a dash or two of cinnamon over the squash.

Add kale to the pan, a dash of salt, and cover pan.  Cook for 3 minutes, and then take lid off for another 3 minutes, as kale will get crispy!

Serve hot.  Enjoy!
