Serves 4 (serving size: about 1/2 cup quinoa and about 1 1/4 cups squash mixture)
A well-stocked spice cabinet is key for this hearty vegetarian stew. Tomato paste is another staple worth having on hand; make sure to purchase in the tube for easier measuring and a much longer shelf life. You can substitute cubed sweet potato for the butternut squash (one medium potato will equal about 2 cups). If making ahead, reheat the stew with a splash of stock to loosen.
