                                          Instructions
                                           

                                          • Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh strainer until water runs clear, not cloudy.
                                          • Combine quinoa and water in a covered stockpot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until water is completely absorbed, about 10-15 minutes. When done, quinoa will be soft and a white ring will pop out of the kernel. The white ring will appear only when it is fully cooked. Refrigerate at 40 °F.
                                          • Combine apples, squash, and canola oil. Add half of the ginger and half of the cinnamon. Reserve remaining ginger and cinnamon for step 6. Toss well to coat.
                                          • Transfer apple/squash mixture to a sheet pan (18” x 26” x 1”).
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                            For 100 servings, use 4 pans.
                                          • Roast until squash is soft and slightly brown on the edges. DO NOT OVERCOOK.
                                            Conventional oven: 400 °F for 15-20 minutes.
                                            Convection oven: 400 °F for 12-15 minute.
                                          • Combine orange juice concentrate, olive oil, honey, mustard, vinegar, salt, black pepper, white pepper, cilantro, and remaining ginger and cinnamon. Whisk dressing until combined.
                                          • In steam table pan (12” x 20” x 4”) combine quinoa, apple/squash mixture, cranberries, raisins, and dressing. Mix well.
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                            For 100 servings, use 4 pans.
                                            Option: garnish with additional chopped cilantro.
                                            Cover and refrigerate at 40 °F to allow flavors to combine.
                                          • Critical Control Point: Cool to 41 °F or lower within 4 hours.
                                            Refrigerate until ready to serve.
                                          • Portion with 8 fl oz spoodle (1 cup).
