Spiced Roasted Squash with Vegan Feta and Cranberries

Roasted squash is one of my favorite side dishes!  I this dish, it is scented with warming spices, and tossed with sweet cranberries and fragrant cilantro with some vegan feta added in for richness.  It makes a beautiful, flavorful and healthy side dish perfect for Holiday meals!
