    This looks so yummy Amy! :) Most of my cooking is done in this fashion, but over the years I have figured out to have my laptop in the kitchen when I am just “throwing something together” – so I can start typing the recipe as I go! LOL! I love squash and black beans together!

    @Jenn AKA The Leftover Queen, That is smart, Jenn! I usually have a notebook but the laptop would save a step, huh?

    I think the toss together meals end up being the best!

    My 5-minute lunches often feature black beans as well. They’re just so tasty and easy to have on hand for salads, huevos rancheros, vegetarian burgers, stir-fries…the list is endless!

    @Hallie @ Daily Bites, I know…we seem to have the same palate. I could eat at your house every day.

    The salad looks great!

    I know it’s cheating a little, but I have found it so much faster and easier for me since finding butternut squash already cut up at Trader Joe’s.

    @Wendy, I wouldn’t call it cheating. Sometimes semi-prepared foods are much better than eating out. You pay for the convenience but Trader Joe’s has great quality. I wish we had one in Dallas.

    I think some of the very best meals are made this way, Amy. And, I actually like that there is no recipe … no need to get obsessive about having just the right amount of this or that, just throw together the amounts you have according to what looks like the right amounts and enjoy! ;-) All that said, I love this combo and will enjoy it the next time I make quinoa. :-)

    That looks delicious. Those are good time saving tips. I need to remember to make extra quinoa to freeze. Thanks for sharing this at Gluten-Free Wednesdays.
