Step-by-Step

  1. cook Quinoa as directed. I prefer putting it in a microwave safe bowl with the olive oil and water and cooking it for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes and continuing.Fluff with a fork and set aside. You could use a 20 oz bag of frozen butternut squash or peel and cube a medium one. place in the oven with tablespoon of brown sugar or coconut sugar and pat of butter and cook til tender.Saute mushrooms in a small fry pan with teaspoon of olive oil or Pam.
