Quinoa, squid and squash salad!

Tonight’s dinner was a light, colorful salad. I just baked the squash, which I have to say that it takes an awful amount of time, 1h30m at least, should have cut it into smaller pieces! Cooked the quinoa, as I cook rice, first with a bit of garlic and olive oil and after adding water 1 part quinoa for 2 of water. Grilled the squid and cut the veggies. Once the cooked ingredients were cold/lukewarm  I plated, and that’s it! Really nice dinner 😉

Inside the squash, just like pumpkin, there are some seeds, which I baked with some salt and pepper and sprinkled on top of the salad, really tasty at no extra cost 😀
