  • 1 cup quinoa rinsed

  • Place quinoa and broth into a pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover and reduce heat to low, simmer for 15-20 minutes until all liquid is absorbed.
  • Meanwhile while quinoa is cooking, place butter, garlic and onions into large skillet. Cook over medium heat 3-4 minutes until onions are translucent. Add squash and let cook for 10 minutes or until squash softens.
  • Add mushrooms and seasonings, stir to combine. pour in the white wine and mix again. Let cook for a few minutes until all the wine is absorbed. Add cooked quinoa to skillet and thoroughly combine.
  • If desired, add asiago cheese and sliced sausage in and mix well. Serve immediately and enjoy
  • ** I used a tablespoon of butter in this recipe because I thought it added richness to the vegetables. You can also make with olive or grapeseed oil as well.
