                                          • Toss squash in half of oil reserving the other half for step 3. Transfer to a sheet pan (18” x 26” x 1”) lightly coated with pan release spray.
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                            For 100 servings, use 4 pans.
                                          • Roast uncovered until lightly brown around the edges:
                                            Conventional oven: 350 °F for 30 minutes
                                            Convection oven: 350 °F for 22 minutes
                                            Critical Control Point: Hold at 135 °F or higher.
                                          • Toss onions, jalapeno peppers, and red peppers with remaining oil.
                                          • Line a sheet pan (18” x 26” x 1”) with aluminum foil or a nonstick pan liner. Spread vegetable mixture on sheet pan.
                                          • Roast:
                                            Conventional oven: 350 °F for 15 minutes
                                            Convection oven: 350 °F for 10 minutes
                                            Check mixture after 10 minutes. Cook vegetables until they soften and turn brown around the edges.
                                            DO NOT OVERCOOK.
                                            Remove from oven.
                                            Critical Control Point: Hold at 135 °F or higher.
                                          • Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh strainer until water runs clear, not cloudy.
                                          • Combine quinoa and water in a covered saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until water is completely absorbed, about 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.
                                          • Combine squash, black beans, quinoa, and oregano.
                                          • Mix in applesauce, salt, and optional lime juice.
                                          • Fold in onion and pepper mixture.

                                          Special tip for preparing dry beans:
                                          SOAKING BEANS
                                          OVERNIGHT METHOD: Add 1¾ qt cold water to every 1 lb of dry beans. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Discard the water. Proceed with recipe.
                                          QUICK-SOAK METHOD: Boil 1¾ qt of water for each 1 lb of dry beans. Add beans and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to soak for 1 hour. Discard the water. Proceed with recipe.
                                          COOKING BEANS
                                          Once the beans have been soaked, add 1¾ qt water for every lb of dry beans. Boil gently with lid tilted until tender, about 2 hours.
                                          Use hot beans immediately.
                                          Critical Control Point: Hold for hot service at 135 °F or higher. OR Chill for later use.
                                          Critical Control Point: Cool to 70 °F within 2 hours and to 40 °F or lower within an additional 4 hours.
                                          1 lb dry black beans = about 2½ cups dry or 4½ cups cooked beans.
