Ingredients

  • 1 bag of frozen California blend broccoli, cauliflower & carrots
  • 1 tbs olive oil 2 tsp for vegetables, 1 tsp for quinoa
  • 1 cup golden quinoa dry
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 cups vegetable stock (or chicken if you prefer)
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Empty the bag of frozen vegetables into a large mixing bowl. Use a piece of paper towel to wipe out any significant frost (don't be too fussy about this). Add 2 tsp of olive oil and toss.
  3. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast for 9-10 minutes, mix the vegetables around and return to oven after about 6 more minutes, retoss then roast a few more minutes (total roasting time about 20 minutes).
  4. While the vegetables are roasting, place a small skillet over med-high heat, add 1 tsp olive oil, quinoa and garlic, stir regularly until quinoa is toasted, but garlic is not burnt.
  5. Add stock, reduce heat to med-low, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed (about 20 minutes).
  6. Add the roasted vegetables to the skillet and drizzle sesame oil over them. Gently toss until evenly mixed.
  7. Serve with your choice of condiments. (My faves are either a a combination of sriracha, lime and soy sauce or just a generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.)
