    Quinoa with butternut squash; baked with gruyere cheese. I used spinach (because that's what I had), but my sister used kale the other day.

      I have made this several times over the past year. I first time I followed the recipe as written. then, one day I was making it and decided to change it by spicing it up. I added peppers some spicy and some mild. Also , I added tex-mex flavoring such as chili powder, cumin, and red pepper flakes. you do have to go a little heavy on the flavors because the squash is sweet. if you go this way change the cheese to a Mexican style cheese or cheddar. I love the recipe but I like it better with the changes too. thank-you

      I love the healthful ingredients & the flavor mix. My 1year old son likes it too. Mine turned out a little dry though. I will make this again, but might add some brith or something to make it more moist. Thanks for posting.
