If you are a fan of pumpkin, you are going to love this recipe. Roasting it makes it tastes extra delicious and it really is one of the meals that leaves you feeling comfortably full and satisfied.
You will Need
2 Cups Quinoa
1 Stock Cube or Tbsp homemade stock concentrate
500 Grams Pumpkin (in wedges)
200 grams Brussels Sprouts (cut into thirds)
8 Sun Dried Tomatoes
1 Bunch Fresh Parsley
1 Onion, quartered
1 Zucchini, sliced
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Place Pumpkin and Onion on an oven tray.
Drizzle a little olive oil over Pumpkin and Onion, followed by a sprinkling of Cinnamon.
Roast for approx 30 mins, turning once.
In a saucepan, place your quinoa and cover with water.
Bring to a boil then turn down to a gentle simmer.
Add your stock and stir occasionally.
Once water is all absorbed, check that your Quinoa has sprouted little tails. If not, add more water and continue to cook until little tails appear, then you'll know your Quinoa is cooked.
In a separate saucepan, heat a little Olive Oil and stir in Brussels Sprouts until they start to soften.
