Green Goddess Fall Salad

Preheat oven to 500 -550 degrees.  Cover a cookie sheet tray with aluminum foil and spray with pan spray. Prepare garbanzo beans by mixing beans, oil, and spices until evenly coated.  Place seasoned garbanzo beans on ½ the tray – place diced pieces of butternut squash (seasoned with salt and pepper) on other half.  Roast for 15 minutes, then allow to cool as desired before adding kale and topping with pepitas.
