I found this amazing dish at Epicurious and adapted it slightly based on what I had (or didn't have) in the fridge. I must say that this is a new favorite comfort dinner! Earlier this week, I researched which veggies were in season at the moment (winter squash!) which then led me to this recipe. It's definitely warm goodness on a chilly night!
Tonight was my first attempt at quinoa and I must say, I totally dig it! For those who don't know, quinoa is the seed of a leafy plant (not a grain) but it can be subbed for nearly any grain. It's full of protein, fiber, potassium, and iron and digests easily. Mix cooked quinoa with veggies and spices to eat as a side at lunch or dinner. Mix it with honey, nuts, or berries for a filling breakfast. Gotta love the versatility!
As for the recipe: Quinoa with Moroccan Squash & Carrot Stew
