If you are a big mushroom fan, you will really like this. I am a big butternut squash fan and a so, so mushroom fan, so I liked the flavor, but didn't love it. I could not find the quinoa flakes, so I just used 3/4 cup panko.... and it was very good and crunchy on top of the squash. It definitely needed the crunch.
