Quinoa with Pumpkin, Zucchini and Walnuts

I know that we can cook with pumpkin all year around even if it's not the fresh pumpkin but the pumpkin puree, but for some reason I mostly cook with it in the fall. All the stores suddenly get filled with beautiful colorful pumpkins and I have to take one home. I find that learn to love pumpkin more and more and make dishes with it every year. Some of them become family favorites, like Pumpkin Pancakes with Parmesan and Pumpkin Cheesecake with Maple syrup and Pecans. We also fell in love with the new recipe I tried this year Pumpkin Cake with oranges and walnuts.

In my constant search for new healthy and tasty recipes for my family, I came up with this Quinoa recipe with Pumpkin, Zucchini and Walnuts. It's light, tasty, colorful and really good for you.
