VEGETABLE QUINOA BAKE: Quinoa, the ancient South American grain with a nutty flavor and chewy texture, teams up with a medley of vegetables for this casserole. This makes an impressive centerpiece for holiday dinners or other festive occasions. Jay prepared this dish on "Alive and Wellness," a cable television show, and it was a big hit. PREHEAT oven to 400F/200C. In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onion, mushrooms, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, if desired, zucchini, and garlic and saute for about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the water, quinoa, squash, carrots kale, and seasonings and bring to a boil. Transfer the mixture to a 9" X 13" casserole dish and cover. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until all of the liquid is absorbed. Remove from the oven and fluff with a fork. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

I made this with spinach in a large Dutch oven and it was great! Thank you for the recipe!

Yum. Omitted carrots and used potatoes instead of butternut. The kale was excellent in this. I did use chicken broth instead of water. The dish needs broth for flavor. I think Indian spices would bump it up to 5 stars - I did add cumin & thyme, but next time I will increase garlic and use curry coriander garam masala etc.

I made a version of this dish. Instead of using quinoa, I made the dish with spelt. I had it bake in the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Also, I used vegetable broth. For an added kick, I squirted in two shots of sirracha. I did not add kale into the dish.

The kids and I both enjoyed this meal. Very tasty and very filling. I think I might add a few Indian spices to it next time - which will be soon.

I also used stock for flavour and added toasted nuts when serving. Tasty!

This was delicious... A little bland the first time I made it, but the 2nd time I used stock instead of water, and added sultanas and slivered almonds... Ssoooo good!!
