quinoa is one of my favorite grains. it's wonderful in soups and in veggie burger recipes, and for those who avoid gluten, it's a wonderful substitute for bulgar in tabouli. 2C water to 1C quinoa, cook for 1 hour in the sun oven at 350F.

for this salad, i threw together whatever i had on hand - a few walnuts, olives, chopped apples, parsley, and red onions. the dressing is made of lime juice, olive oil, powered anise, salt, and pepper.

butternut squash

time to cook up what's left of last season's harvest. i simply cut two smallish squash in half without peeling, let them bake in the sun oven for about an hour and a half at approximately 350. the flesh was very easy to scrape out to add to a simple soup.
