1 (2-lb.) butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-in. cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup dried green lentils
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
2 cups arugula
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese

While squash bakes, place lentils in a medium saucepan. Cover with water to 3 inches above lentils; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, cumin, and red wine vinegar. Let stand 10 minutes.

Siteman Cancer Center and Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital will be conducting free head and neck cancer screenings to those with increased risk factors. Regardless of your age, tobacco (including smokeless tobacco) and alcohol use are the most significant risk factors for head and neck cancers. The screening will be of particular interest to those who experience mouth and throat pain, lumps in the neck or sores in the mouth, hoarseness, persistent cough or difficulty swallowing. If you suspect that you are at risk, early detection is key to effective treatment options.View More »
