Honeynut Squash, Avocado, and Sprout Veggie Bowl

"Have you tried honeynut squash yet? It looks like a micro sized butternut squash, has very thin skin (no need to peel!), it’s loaded with beta-carotene, silky smooth, super sweet, and also. MINI = CUTE. This bowl has a whole roasted half of a honey nut squash + lentil and broccoli sprouts + roasted chickpeas + radishes + avo + fresh herbs and romaine!"
