Roasted Vegetable Quinoa Salad

If you don’t know what quinoa is or how to pronounce it, you should. It’s a gluten-free grain that’s loaded with protein and other good stuff. It’s also very versatile and I like mixing into it a wide variety of things…like vegetables, nuts, dried fruits, meat, etc. After coming home from the farmers market this weekend loaded with lots of great vegetables, I decided to roast them, chop them, and mix them with some quinoa. It makes a nice dish you can serve hot or cold. Try to pick veggies that get some great caramelization on them – like carrots, beets, onions – to give it a sweet, flavorful kick. I went with broccoli, corn, carrots, grape tomatoes to give the salad lots of color.
