Instructions
Quinoa
  1. To cook Quinoa: Rinse 2 cups quinoa. Bring to boil in pot on stove 2 cups quinoa and 4 cups water. Reduce to simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes, until soft and translucent and most of the water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.
Sweet Spice Soup
  1. To cook Sweet Spice Soup: Rinse and chop veggies into chunks approximately one inch or so. Put olive oil in wok or large pan over medium heat and sauté onions and garlic for a few minutes. Then add the other veggies and cook until soft. Throw all the veggies into a blender with just enough milk for a thick consistency, spices, and salt, and blend until smooth.Enjoy! *Preparing butternut squash is quite easy. Cut off ends, cut lengthwise, scoop seeds out, slice into eighths lengthwise and steam in steaming basket over 1 inch water in covered pan on stove unit soft, then peel. Or, cut into chunks, peel, and throw into wok or large pot with the other veggies. In this case, I steamed two butternut squash and stored the extra in the fridge for future use.
Put It All Together
  1. Combine 1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa and 1 cup Sweet Spice Soup (also see Sweet Spice Soup recipe on our website drjohnday.com for instructions) Top with freshly ground pepper and parmesan cheese
