A few nice quinoa images I found:

First time having quinoa, and I wasn’t impressed until I ate it with the squash. Alone, quinoa doesn’t appeal to me as much as rice–rice has that fragrance along with the starchiness that allows one to eat it with chopsticks. Yet when paired with the flavorful acorn squash, the quinoa did offer a pleasant variation of texture, and I could appreciate it more.
Used acorn squash instead of kabocha, but forgot to shorten the time in the oven, hence the burning.
