If, like me, you like colorful food, this fall, you might want to try this roasted butternut squash salad with chickpeas and feta for a healthy gluten free and vegetarian lunch or dinner.

How to meal prep this butternut squash salad?

I don’t know if I can actually call this meal prepping as I am not familiar with it. But anyway, this is how I organize myself to do this, in order to make it quicker.

When I have a butternut squash, I simply roast it (click here to know what is a butternut squash and how to roast it) and then store it in the fridge once it is roasted. Then I use the roasted butternut squash for many recipes like this salad or my butternut squash salad with cranberries but also for a delicious butternut breakfast bowl or even a chocolate cake.

You can either make this for one serving (as the recipe below) or make this for a crowd. To make it easier for you to prepare for any number of servings, you can use the adjustable servings function on the recipe.
