Ready Time

45 mins


11 servings


  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 3 cups quinoa
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 large butternut squash – peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 3 small zucchinis, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1½ cups chopped green onions
  • 1½ cups diced dried apricots
  • 1½ cups dried cranberries
  • 1½ cups chopped fresh parsley
  • 1½ – 2 limes, juiced, or to taste


In a medium saucepan, bring the vegetable stock to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to low, add the quinoa, cover, and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes.

Remove from heat and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced butternut squash and zucchini and sauté until slightly browned, approximately 10 minutes.

Once the quinoa and vegetables are cooked, combine them in a large bowl.

Stir in the chopped green onions, dried apricots, cranberries, and fresh parsley. For a zesty flavor, drizzle in the juice of 1 1/2 to 2 limes, to your preferred taste.

Mix well to evenly distribute the lime juice and combine all ingredients.
