  • One teaspoon of powdered garlic
  • Three tablespoons of olive oil

Instructions

For the Dressing:

Put all of the dressing ingredients in a mason jar or other container with a tight-fitting cover. Shake until the olive oil is mixed into the dressing and the salt is dissolved. Put aside.

For the Roasted Vegetables:

  1. Set the oven temperature to 375°F, or 190.5°C. Arrange Brussels sprouts, parsnip, asparagus, carrots, and butternut squash on a half sheet pan. If preferred, use parchment paper.
  2. Mix the olive oil, kosher salt, garlic powder, and herb de Provence in a medium-sized mixing basin. Over the veggies on the sheet pan, drizzle over three-quarters of this mixture.
  3. Make sure all of the veggies are fully covered by rubbing them with the herb mixture. Toss in the zucchini and pepper slices after adding them to the bowls with the remaining herb mixture, and coat well. Put aside.
  4. For thirty minutes, roast the veggies on the baking sheet. Take it out of the oven and add the peppers and zucchini.
  5. Turn the veggies over and stir in the peppers and zucchini using an oven-safe spatula. Add 10 more minutes to the roasting time.
  6. When ready to serve, give the veggies two minutes of high broiling. Combine cooked quinoa, roasted veggies, and a dressing drizzle to assemble bowls.

Use glass containers with lids while preparing meals. Spoon leftover quinoa and veggies into each one to make individual servings. Keep the portioned containers in the fridge and the dressing in a jar. Warm up for a prepared lunch throughout the workweek and pour over the leftover dressing.
