  • Ready In

  1. Bring vegetable stock to a boil in a saucepan, reduce heat to low, and stir in quinoa. Cover pan and simmer until quinoa absorbs the liquid, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir butternut squash and zucchinis in the hot oil until slightly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir quinoa into the vegetables and gently mix green onions, apricots, cranberries, and parsley into the stuffing. Drizzle with lime juice to taste.

I did a few things differently, per the reports of blandness. I wasn't looking for a vegetarian dish either, so I used chicken stock to boil the quinoa. I also roasted the vegetables with coconu...
