I love trying to find new ways to bring more quinoa into my life. Here is a wonderful recipe that I call Roasted Veggie Quinoa Salad, and I have to say, it is damn good! Roasting the veggies and pumpkin seeds give it such a rich flavor and that mixed with the creamy Cucumber Cashew Ranch dressing, quinoa and green makes this my new favorite salad.
I only had sweet potatoes and onions on hand for this shoot but really, you can bring any veggie you can think of into this. The sweet potatoes give a creaminess that I think, should always be part of the veggies you choose.

- If you have never heard of or tried quinoa, this link provides good deals for larger purchase options. There are many good deals online but you can also get it at almost every grocery store.
- Raw Cashews are usually very expensive at natural food stores. Did you know you can get a great deal online if you buy in bulk? With lots of cashews on hand you can make all these other cashew recipes, yum!
- I prefer to cook oil free when possible. To achieve crispy roasted veggies without oil I use a silicone baking sheet.
