roasted butternut squash with quinoa

I am in love with the FSC Book Club. The best part is that I don't think I'm alone in that feeling. We are on the third round, cooking our way through Liana Krissoff's Whole Grains for a New Generation, and it's a blast. We "meet" over on Goodreads where people share their tips and advice, ask questions and chat. They post photos on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The author has joined in too and is answering questions from our members! I love seeing new comments pop up in the forums and knowing that we are all diving into the world of whole grains together. Amaranth! Quinoa! Oats! Spelt! Farro! It's an awesome challenge and provides a bit of culinary motivation in an otherwise bleak time of year. To be leading a book club and cook-a-long is a dream come true.

The Roasted Butternut Squash with Quinoa and Sausage was hands down, the most popular recipe for the quinoa assignment. So many people made it, including two who used homemade seitan sausage! I couldn't resist, so we made it for dinner last night using store-bought veggie sausage and it was fantastic. I knew the FSC Book Club wouldn't steer me wrong.

Join us, won't you? I post the "assignments" every other Monday and then you just stop by Goodreads and check in whenever you'd like. It's a laid back, no stress kind of club. Read more about the FSC Book Club here and see the full schedule here.

  1. You have inspired me to pick up a copy of this book based on the delicous dinner you made last night from one of the recipes. Super deliciousness!

    Thank you for the inspiration. I love trying new things!
