Spinach Squash And Golden Raisin Quinoa


* 1 tbsp olive oil
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 medium leek, trimmed, cleaned, and sliced thin
* 1/2 cup golden raisins
* 2 cups baby spinach leaves, lightly chopped
* 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
* 2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced
* 1 cup quinoa
* 2 tbsp walnuts, chopped and lightly toasted


1. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan.
2. Add garlic and leeks, then cook about 5 minutes until leeks are softened, stirring occasionally.
3. Add the squash, quinoa, broth, and raisins, then bring mixture to a boil.
4. Turn heat down to low and cover pot; simmer about 12 to 15 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed and quinoa and squash are tender - turn off the heat.
5. Stir in spinach and sprinkle with walnuts. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.


You can use any squash you like in this dish - whatever is available at the time. But, choose a squash variety that isn't too watery or delicate, as it will get mushy in the cooking process. Another option for this dish is sweet potatoes. You can tweak this recipe quite a bit.

The combination of savory ingredients like leeks, garlic, and squash with the sweet raisins make this quinoa dish a real treat.
