Butternut Squash, Leek and Quinoa Salad

Here is a delicious and fun way to use butternut squash, leeks and quinoa. I adore the garlicky onion flavor of leek and after using it always feel I should use it more. This dish is whole grain, fiber and nutrient rich and satisfying. 

Butternut squash, leek and quinoa salad 


  • one butternut squash, cubed to roast
  • one pack of boil in the bag quinoa love these as easy and fast to cook
  • A few cauliflower florets 
  • One large leek chopped 
  • a handful of cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and coriander powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked chipotle pepper

I am continuing to learn marketing skills for Anchored Nutrition Therapy, being honest opening a private practice in a pandemic has been hard, and holding on to the dream keeping the office although the last two months has been very slow. If you know anyone who would benefit from a registered dietitian in North Carolina or the UK send them my way, I can help with childhood and family nutrition, ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder), IBS and low FODMAP meals, heart health and weight concerns. I love bringing mindfulness and cooking, recipe ideas, gardening into my practice.
