In the garbage disposal (not a big fan, maybe it’s because I never had it prepared correctly).

  1. Vegetable Quinoa Bake With Red Kuri Squash

    white wine or veggie stock or 2 tbl of olive oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    8-10 mushrooms, sliced
    1 large bell pepper, diced
    1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
    1 small zucchini, diced
    2 cloves garlic, minced (I used 3-4)
    3 cups water (or chicken stock)
    1 1/2 cups quinoa, rinsed well 2 cups peeled and diced butternut, or other winter squash
    1 cup chopped kale or escarole
    1 /2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. pepper

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sauté with wine, broth, or olive oil the onion, mushrooms, peppers, zucchini, and garlic for about 5 minutes. Stir in rest of ingredients and bring to a boil. Transfer mixture to a 9×13 casserole dish and cover. Bake until liquid is absorbed, about 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven and fluff with a fork. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
