Quinoa with Acorn Squash and Pomegranate

I’d call this dish a happy accident.  Here’s the short version of a long story.  There were plans to roast a whole eight pound fish at our Friendsgiving dinner a few weeks ago.  Why?  Well, I don’t know.  I wanted to… it sounded like fun.  Do I need a reason?  I’m crazy!  We were very close to actually doing it and then someone (cough, cough — Eric — cough) decided they’d be practical and bring up that maybe we didn’t have enough space in our oven to roast a whole fish.  Now, I was under a lot of stress at the time and I COULD have freaked out (I’ve been known to throw tantrums in the midst of party planning).  But I didn’t.  I kept my cool and said, “Ok, darling husband, now I need to think of something to make for those that don’t eat meat.”  I took a deep breath, looked at the ingredients on hand, and came up with this quinoa dish.

So, I guess I have Eric to thank for this creation…. thanks for poopooing on on my dreams of roasting a whole fish.  Without you, I wouldn’t have created this fabulous recipe.
