Roasted Squash Quinoa Bowl Recipe
  |   September 21, 2018   |  
Think of a quinoa bowl as a beautiful - and delicious! - white canvas, which you can paint with colorful veggies, nuts and seeds, and pretty much any topping you want. We roasted some butternut squash, sautéed some onions, and tossed it all together with almonds and goat cheese for a fall-perfect vegetarian quinoa bowl. To take it one step further and make it vegan, sub for a cheese alternate or just remove altogether.
