Quinoa with Butternut Squash, Scallions, & Parsley

(from Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘It’s All Good’)

This is one of my absolute favorite quinoa dishes, and tasty enough for the husband to enjoy! Image

  • 1/2 Butternut Squash, peeled and cut into small dice
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Course Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Cups Cooked Quinoa
  • 3 Scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped Parsley

Preheat oven to 400F. Toss squash with 2 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of salt on a sheet pan and roast until soft, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the lemon juice with 3 tbsp of olive oil in a large mixing bowl along with a big pinch of salt. While the squash is still warm, toss it into the dressing bowl along with the quinoa, scallions, and parsley. Taste the mixture and add a bit more salt or lemon if you feel it needs it.
