Quinoa bowl with spiced roasted vegetables (video)

September 17, 2018

Veggies with veggies. And with some quinoa.😁I really love raw vegetables, especially carrots(!!🐰), my fave snack at school. But when you roast those delicious veggies, you make something utterly delicious of it. In this recipe, I used these vegetables to make a nutritious quinoa bowl, but feel free to use any veggies, you find at home. Just add olive oil, spices and they are ready to go into the oven.

That's how I made it:

Ingredients
4 servings (at least):
a bowl of cooked quinoa
1 small aubergine
1 big zucchini
a bunch of carrots
1-2 handfuls brussels sprouts
onion
red onion
1-2 handfuls mushroom
salt
pepper
Ras el hanout
olive oil
sauce for the quinoa:
1 tbsp capers
a handful cherry tomatoes
a clove of garlic
olive oil
topping:
cherry tomatoes
sprouted sunflower seeds
spinach
basil

Cook the quinoa, I used 2 dl quinoa and cooked in 4 dl water for 15 mins on a low heat, don't forget to stir occasionally, then cover for 10 mins after cooking. Prepare your veggies. I made a separate baking sheet for the carrot, zucchini and aubergine, added some olive oil, spices, then put into the oven. After that, I put mushrooms, brussels sprouts and onions into another baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. I baked the carrot portion for 35-40 min on 200°C, the brussels sprouts portion for 20-25 min.
While the veggies are roasting, you can make a sauce for the quinoa: finely chop capers, cherry tomatoes and garlic together and stir into the quinoa with a drizzle of olive oil.
Serve with seeds, salad, tomatoes.
