Another Reason to Love the Tiny Little Superseed

Noodles, potatoes and rice are often the carb-y stars (or co-stars) in a casserole, but this simple bake relies on superseed quinoa, so it tastes a bit lighter—perfect for summer. You cook the quinoa in vegetable broth to give the seeds rich flavor, and the dish gets a woodsy, earthy note from roasted butternut squash and mushrooms. Dark green kale brings even more nutrition and a burst of color.
