Butternut squash, Quinoa, Chicken Stew

Hard to decide what to post first as I have been trying out a plethora of new recipes these past few weeks. Now I have plenty of pictures and recipes to share so I will hopefully be ahead of the game for posting 🙂

When the weather is a bit colder there is nothing quite like a hearty warm stew or soup. Ran across this recipe on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a try. It did not disappoint. This soup is very filling and gave me enough to freeze and eat as leftovers during the week (I’ll let you know how it freezes in a later update). What I liked about this particular dish is that tasted even more flavorful in the days that followed.


Here is what you will need:

  • butternut squash
  • chicken broth
  • chicken
  • olive oil
  • yellow onion
  • salt
  • fresh garlic
  • dried oregano
  • can diced tomatoes
  •  quinoa
  • kalamata olives
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • fresh parsley

My Tips: I steamed my butternut squash whole in about 1/2 in. of water before cutting it. Found it to be easier to cut this way. Used chicken from a chicken I had baked earlier.

    I had this recipe marked on Pinterest, too – I can’t wait to try it now! I had an issue with copyright on my blog a few weeks ago, and I found this link to be very useful in figuring out what was okay to post and how to go about giving credit:
