Butternut, Kale, and Adzuki Bean Saute

Butternut squash's warm, rich texture paired with the firm, nutty adzuki bean makes this a hearty and delicious treat for the fall!  I love to eat this dish with Coconut Rice.

2. Add the cinnamon and stir among the shallots until coated.  
3. Add the cubed butternut squash and mix well with shallots and cinnamon.
