Butternut Quinoa

This may be my favorite quinoa recipe yet! 

It looks and acts a lot like a flavored rice, but has more protein, and a lower glycemic index.

1 T olive oil

1 c butternut squash puree

2/3 c chopped bell pepper

1/3 c finely chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

2 stalks celery, diced

1 1/3 c chicken broth

1 c uncooked quinoa

1/2 t salt

Heat oil in a large sauce pan, and add garlic, onion, celery, and pepper.  Saute 4 min and add squash, broth, quinoa, and salt.  Bring to a boil.  Cover and reduce heat.  Simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.  Serve hot.
