Scale

Ingredients

2 cups of roasted butternut squash (*see recipe link in the instructions)

2 cups of vegetable broth

1 cup quinoa

1/4 cup cranberries

1 - 2 avocados

1/4 cup microgreens


Instructions

  1. Prepare the roasted butternut squash
  2. Combine vegetable broth and quinoa in a medium size pot. Heat to a boil, then simmer, covered, until the germ has spiraled out from the grain, approximately 15 minutes. Option: Toast the quinoa in a skillet, on low heat, before adding it to the pot. This gives an added roasted flavor to the grain.
  3. Cut the avocado into cubes.
  4. Plate the salad - quinoa as a base, then sections of cranberries, butternut squash, avocado and then topped with microgreens.

Notes

* If serving cold, you can prepare the quinoa and butternut squash ahead of time and refrigerate. Plate when ready to serve.
