I was really amazed that this dish had so much flavor with such simple ingredients.  Another thing you can probably do with this is to cook the quinoa in vegetable broth instead of water.  It should add an even deeper level of flavor.  This dish is vegan and gluten free.  I hope you enjoy it.

Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

Any easy and healthy meal option!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 large yellow onion rough chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 zucchini rough chopped
  • 1 red pepper rough chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper rough chopped
  • 2 large carrot rough chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the quinoa and water to a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, then turn down, cover and simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed. Mine took about 7-10 minutes.
  • Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Spread all the chopped veggies, except the corn, onto a lined baking sheet. Brush them with the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Roast for 1 hour. Stop halfway to flip the veggies over. When there is only about 5 minutes left, add in the corn.
  • Once the vegetables are done, add them to the quinoa and mix well. This is the time to add the lemon juice as well. Take a taste and add more salt, pepper or garlic if needed.

This dish should last a week in the fridge. Enjoy!

  1. Lovely! We will need to use other (more tasteless) veggies since we’re also nightshade-free in our house (autoimmune disease), but this seems quite do-able! Please make sure to THOROUGHLY rinse the quinoi before cooking. The saponins will trully cause trouble to sensitive or otherwise compromised digestion.

  2. Wondering if you can taste the coconut in this dish? Or how do you think it would be using avocado oil instead?
