Looking for a different and delicious side for your healthy menu? Give this Pumpkin Quinotto a try. Made with nutritious quinoa and pumpkin, it is a wholesome and delicious twist on risotto and super easy and quick to put together.

What else? You can make it in advance and re-heat just before serving. Perfect!

For this Latin version of the risotto I like using Latin Cremas and there is nothing better than Cacique® Cremas. I especially like the full, rich flavor of the cultured sour cream and the slightly tart taste of the Cacique® Crema Salvadoreña. I found it enhanced the flavor of the pumpkin and cheese in this recipe.

Cacique® Crema Salvadoreña is perfect as a base for sauces, soups, dips and dressing.

I hope you add this side to your healthy meals. You can use bi-color or tri-color quinoa like I did, or just use the normal yellow one. The flavor is the same. And the pumpkin puree provides a warm deep orange color.
