2014-05-12 18.03.37

I had a bag of red quinoa in my pantry… I know, right? How does something this cool just sit in my pantry?? Anyway, I made this delicious pot of yummy that is worth making again. What you will need:

2 cups red quinoa

1 bouillon cube, veggie and herbs with sea salt

1/2 an onion, diced

1/2 pound red chard

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp avocado oil

12 oz cubed butternut squash

1/2 cup slivered almonds

Cook quinoa according to directions on package and add the bouillon cube to the cooking water. Microwave butternut squash in covered dish for six minutes. In a pan, sauté onion, garlic, and chard in avocado oil until the chard and onion soften, 7-12 minutes. Add the butternut squash and make sure everything is cooked to the consistency you prefer. Remove from heat. Add quinoa and almonds and stir. Serve hot. Yummers!
