Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This is very tasty and has a nice presentation. It is high in calories, but that is mostly due to the Gruyere cheese. You can substitute another or cut down the amount to reduce calories. I've made this several times, it's great in the fall. Submitted by:

I almost didn't try this recipe - too many calories... I modified it a bit - I dropped the raisins and olive oil (roasted the squash plain and added the onion to the quinoa to cook instead of sauteeing), and cut the quinoa, almonds, and cheese in 1/2 - added a box of frozen spinach, too -very good!
