Ingredients

Preparation

Cook the quinoa

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil over high heat, and dissolve 1/2 teaspoon salt in the hot water. Add quinoa, adjust the heat to medium low, cover the pot, and simmer until water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Fluff with fork and let cool in refrigerator.

Cook the lentils

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil over high heat and dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of salt in the hot water. Add lentils, cumin and cinnamon and cover the pot. Adjust the heat to medium low and simmer until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain excess liquid but do not rinse. Cool.

Roast the vegetables

Preheat oven to 400˚ F. Lightly coat peppers, onions, squash and mushrooms with 1 tablespoon oil. Roast for 6 to 8 minutes, until some liquid has been released and vegetables have begun to soften and change color. Let cool.

When the grains and vegetables are cool, toss together with remaining olive oil and oregano. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Notes

Any seasonal vegetable may be used to substitute for the peppers, mushroom, onions and summer squash. Aim for a total of 2 pounds of vegetables before any peeling, seeding or chopping.
