INGREDIENTS

  • 4 c butternut squash, carrots, or sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced
  • 1/2 C water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash of Creole Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 c quinoa, uncooked
  • 3 c of water
  • 4 c of sliced broccoli (or other fresh vegetables like zucchini or yellow squash)
  • dash of water to pan saute
  • salt and pepper or lemon juice, to taste (optional)
  • Garnish: toasted almonds, and fresh cilantro or parsley (optional; only for PS)


DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Into a large roasting pan, add the butternut squash, carrots, or sweet potatoes, and onion slices. Season with salt and pepper and a dash of Creole Seasoning. 
  2. Add a 1/2 cup of water to the roasting pan, and roast vegetables uncovered until tender, around 20 – 50 minutes depending on the size.
  3. While vegetables are oven-roasting, prepare the quinoa according to package instructions, using 1 1/2 cups dry quinoa to 3 cups of water.
  4. Once the quinoa has been set up to steam, finish the broccoli separately.  Steam or pan-saute until the florets turn bright green and are tender-crisp. Turn off the heat, and season to taste. 
  5. Toss all ingredients together.
  6. Garnish (if desired) and serve immediately.
