Recipe Ingredients for Warm Quinoa Salad with Roast Butternut Squash

2 cups Squash Butternut
1 tsp Extra-virgin olive oil
1 Kosher salt
1 Freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 cup water
2 teaspoons fresh sage, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 orange, juiced
1 Cumin, to taste

Recipe Directions for Warm Quinoa Salad with Roast Butternut Squash

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Mix the squash with a small amount of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine and spread onto a foil covered baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, turn and bake for an additional 15 minutes until tender. Set aside to cool.

  3. In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup lightly salted water and 1/2 cup quinoa to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the liquid is absorbed, about 12-15 minutes.

  4. In a separate saute pan heat a small amount of olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and sage and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until the garlic is soft, but not browned. Add the orange juice, cumin, and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Toss the orange juice mixture with the quinoa. Add the butternut squash and toss to combine. Serve warm, garnished with sage leaves if desired.
