Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

This is a great quick dish and i love to cook the quinoa in the oven, along with the roasted vegetables. Great hot or cold.

Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

This is delicious as a dish in its own right or as a side dish served along side meat, fish or vegetarian dishes.  This can be served as it is or you can pimp it up by adding things like parmasean cheese, feta cheese, chilli, spices, pomegranete seeds or other items, be creative!!  I like making a little more and having it cold the next day or lunch or in lunch boxes too.

  • Pace one cup of quinoa into a oven proof dish and add 2 cups of vegetable stock.  (Ensure this stock is gluten free if making for gluten free)  You could if you wish to add other flavours like chilli, lemon or pesto (ensure this vegan if making dairy free or vegan) or other vegetables if you would like too such as frozen peas, broccoli etc.  Place into the oven and cook for 20 minutes.  
  • After 20 minutes remove the quiona and this should be cooked, fluff with a fork.  Remove the vegetables,  Place the quinoa into a large bowl or serving platter and add your vegetables and mix together or place on top and you are ready to serve.  If you would like to add other flavours feel free to experiment.
    Enjoy.

Here are some items that you might find helpful. I just love these pyrex glass roasting trays. These can be used for so many things, and i use them for practically anything that i would put on a baking tray. They cook things beautifully and clean so much better than any baking tray and have a much longer shelf life!! I think they are just brilliant and clean beautifully in the dishwasher too….
