Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C), with a rack in the middle position. Put the squash on an 18-by-13-inch (46-by-33-cm) sheet pan and sprinkle with the olive oil, turmeric and cumin and season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, combine well, then spread the squash out across the pan.

2
Done

Roast until lightly browned on the bottom, about 15 minutes, then scrape under the pieces using a metal spatula angled down toward the bottom of the pan and toss them around, spreading them out again. If the pieces stick to the pan, resist the urge to force them up—you'll likely end up with a pan full of mangled squash; instead, simply cook them for another 5 minutes or so, then try again. After tossing the squash, cook until just tender with slightly caramelized edges, about 10 minutes more. Let cool for a few minutes.

3
Done

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the grapeseed oil, vinegar, yogurt, maple syrup and shallots, then season with salt and pepper. (Or, in a jar with a lid, combine the ingredients, cover, then shake vigorously.) Check the seasonings. Quickly dip a piece of kale in the dressing, shake off any excess, and check the seasonings again.

4
Done

In a large bowl, combine the kale, Brussels sprouts, roasted squash and pumpkin seeds. Drizzle the salad with enough dressing to lightly coat, then toss to combine. (Save any extra dressing for another use.) Check the seasonings. Add the avocado and gently toss again.
