This dish requires just ten components and easy strategies to put together.

It commences by cooking your quinoa and roasting your squash until finally golden and tender. The squash will get a taste increase from salt and a little coconut sugar.

Subsequent, you can prepare your balsamic reduction by merely cooking more than minimal flame for 15 until a syrup varieties. And all that’s left is sauting your cooked quinoa, mushrooms, kale, and walnuts (optional). When your squash is tender, stuff with your quinoa filling and bake yet another 5 minutes right up until sizzling. That’s it!

For garnish we went with our balsamic reduction and our beloved crispy shallot to include a savory crunch to the top. It’s optional but highly suggested and can be prepared even though your squash is roasting!

We hope you enjoy this squash! It’s:
