It is best to rinse and then soak the quinoa for at least 6 hours ahead of time. Quinoa will sprout “little tails.”
Rinse again and cover with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, stir and cover and let steam for 15 to 20 minutes.
Place all vegetables, water, lemon juice and red pepper on a baking pan. Roast in oven until tender.
Combine quinoa, roasted vegetables and remaining ingredients in a bowl, mix well. Serve.
