Will be making this again, might even become a regular favourite as it is quick and easy to make. I had to improvise a little, not having quinoa. I used cauliflower riced instead, which I steamed with a little added salt and nutmeg. I believe it still complimented the recipe and the added nutmeg goes well with the addition of cranberries and butternut. Most chefs would frown terribly, but I popped the butternut into the microwave under the "cook potato" function, which halved the cooking time in the oven, making this a 20min recipe as opposed to 40min. Handy if you are in a hurry...

Great side dish. Was a tad bland since I was not going heavy on the spicy pepper. Added salt and butter after it was done. Next time I might add more spice. Also, butternut squash shrinks up a bit so use about 1/2 more than you actually need.

Really happy surprise , this dish was. Wanted something different, and although I thought this seemed a bit weird, it was great. (I used half amount of veggie broth while cooking the Quinoa)

Wonderful and very easy to prepare and bake. I reduced the amount of chili flakes to 1/2 teaspoon and even that was a bit too spicy for me. Next time I will omit them all together. This dish is going to become a regular in my house. I made this a second time without the spice and it was without much flavor, from now on I will add the spices, but perhaps not as much. Everyone I have served this to has loved it, and I have now made it 1/2 a dozen times. Thank you!
