YELLOW + DELICATA SQUASH QUINOA BOWL



Welp. I've been very busy. I'm in my last year as a Master of Social Work student. I haven't had time to blog the meals I've been throwing down. Lately, I eat my meals in between juggling classes, assignments, internship, and part-time jobs. Lawd, help me! The hustle is real!

To lighten the load in my busy schedule, I recently started using Imperfect Produce. It's a service that delivers "ugly" produce to your doorstep. It's saving me money and time as I get a low-income student discount and don't have to spend time in the grocery store. I also love this service, because it has introduced me to vegetables and fruits I might never try—like delicata squash. Below is a one-pot quinoa bowl recipe with roasted delicata squash.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 yellow Squash
  • 1 delicata squash
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stock
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup lentil beans
  • Coconut oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Cumin
  • Parsley flakes

DIRECTIONS
  • Pre-heat oven to 350°
  • Chop delicata squash, toss with coconut oil, and sprinkle sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder
  • Place on baking sheet, top with parsley flakes, and place in oven for 15-20 minutes
  • Chop up carrot, celery, squash, onions and place aside
  • In a pot, add coconut oil and chopped onion, add desired amount of sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder, and saute until translucent
  • Add remaining vegetables, desired amount of sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cumin, and saute for 5-10 minutes
  • Add lentils and 1 cup of water, stir, place lid on pot, and simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Add quinoa and 2 cups of water, stir, place lid on pot, and simmer on medium heat for another 10 minutes or until water is absorbed, stirring occasionally
  • Once cooked, place in bowl and top with roasted delicata squash

Enjoy!
