Butternut squash, black bean and quinoa salad

I made this salad recently and was impressed that my daughter is asking for it again, this is tasty, with lots of flavor and nourishing. 


  • one butternut squash, cubed to roast
  • one pack of boil in the bag quinoa love these as easy and fast to cook
  • one can of black beans 
  • a handful of cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and coriander powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked chipotle pepper 
  • a dash of olive oil
  • 1/4 of a red onion finely chopped

  1. heat oven to 400 degrees, roast butternut squash for 20 -30 min until soft with olive oil, salt and pepper and smoked chipotle pepper
  2. meanwhile cook the quinoa 
  3. then in a large mixing bowl, mix the squash, a can of black beans, onion, cumin and coriander powder, cilantro and a little more chipotle pepper. 
This makes a fun lunch or as a side dish. 

Happy new year wonderful folks. 

I wanted to share this lovely moment in the mountains yesterday-
