Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup coarsely chopped peeled butternut squash
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoon thinly sliced green onions


Directions

Roast


Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add squash and next 4 ingredients (squash through garlic); saute 4 minutes. Stir in broth, quinoa, and salt; bring to a boil.


Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.


Sprinkle the quinoa mixture with thinly sliced green onions.


Note: to prep squash: Take your squash and put it into a suitably-sized pot. Cover it with water, put the lid on the pot, and bring it to a boil (the steam trapped in the pot will cook whatever portion of the squash is above the surface). Simmer the squash for just a few minutes, until a wooden skewer or toothpick can penetrate the skin but *just* the skin; roughly 4-5 minutes. Allow the squash to cool. Then dice!
