  1. Set the oven at 200 degrees. In a baking dish mix the butternut squash with some olive oil and bake for 10 minutes.
  2. In an ovenproof dish with a lid, mix the quinoa with the hot water and some salt. Close the lid.

If you want, you could add sun-dried tomato strips. This recipe works very well with burghul too.
