Ingredients:

1 cup of quinoa uncooked

2 cups of vegetable broth
Chicken broth or water

2 cups of peeled and cubed butternut squash

1 tablespoon olive oil

Optional Dressing:


Olive oil
, 1 lemon
 and honey.

Directions:


Place quinoa and broth in a pot, bring to a boil then lower flame and simmer until liquid is absorbed. While the quinoa cooks, place the butternut squash on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on top, and season with salt, pepper, nutmeg and cumin. Mix well. Roast in oven, uncovered on 400′ for 20-30 minutes until cooked through and soft but slightly firm. Place cooked quinoa in a large bowl. Add the roasted butternut squash, craisins and slivered almonds. Now, to dress or not to dress…I prefer my salads naked but if you like a little something something, then drizzle olive oil and honey on top and squeeze a fresh lemon.
