Maybe it’s just the spirit of the season, but we think that this quinoa bowl is pretty bright and merry. From radiant orange cubes of butternut squash to the ruby red jewel tones of dried cranberries, each bite contains a rainbow of colors and flavors. Shreds of gruyère cheese top off the grains and veggies, adding a bit of melty goodness to this hearty, healthy recipe.
