PREPARING THE SQUASH AND BRUSSELS SPROUTS
Place the halved brussels sprouts and cubed squash in an oiled baking dish or baking sheet.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the squash is tender.
PREPARING THE QUINOA
Rinse the quinoa to remove any residue from the seed. Pour the uncooked quinoa into a fine mesh strainer. Rinse with running water for two to three minutes, agitating the seeds with your hands to remove any residue.
Place the water and quinoa (remember your 2:1 ratio!) in a medium-sized saucepan. Turn the heat up to high, and bring the water and quinoa to a boil.
Once it has reached a full boil, turn the heat down to medium, place the lid on the saucepan, and simmer the quinoa for 15 minutes, or until all of the water is absorbed.
Once the quinoa has finished cooking, add the baby spinach and fluff it with a fork.
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together.
Can serve chilled or warm.
