Gluten-Free, Vegan, Serves 4

For the Roasted Vegetables:

  • 2 cups mixed winter vegetables chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Quinoa Salad:

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup baby spinach or kale, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arils
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

For the Lemon Dijon Dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Toss the chopped winter vegetables with olive oil, dried thyme, salt, and pepper until well coated in a large bowl. Spread the vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast the vegetables in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until they are tender and slightly caramelized, stirring halfway through. Remove the roasted vegetables from the oven and let them cool slightly.

In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa and water or vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the liquid is absorbed. Fluff the cooked quinoa with a fork and let it cool slightly. Combine the cooked quinoa, chopped baby spinach or kale, pomegranate arils, chopped nuts, and fresh parsley in a large salad bowl.

Add the roasted vegetables to the bowl and gently toss to combine. Whisk together the extra-virgin olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and pure maple syrup or agave nectar in a small bowl. Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle the Lemon Dijon Dressing over the quinoa salad. Gently toss the salad to combine all the ingredients and coat them with the dressing.
