Roasted fennel & beets Quinoa

Whenever we have a relaxed weekend I find myself cooking up a storm in preparation for the week. I love to try new recipes and explore with different flavors. This weekend I made several recipes including this amazing roasted fennel and beet quinoa salad. Here's how easy it is.

-slice one fennel bulb in half and then into 1/4 inch strips. Toss in olive oil and place in a parchment lined baking dish
-wrap 3-4 beets in foil and place on same sheet
Bake these in a 425 oven for 30-40 min or until beets are fork tender and fennel is caramelized

Meanwhile rinse your 1 cup of quinoa and cook in water or broth for 18-20 min.

Mix all ingredients together. Drizzle with additional olive oil, salt & pepper, and if desired add chopped parsley, dried cranberries and some cashews! This dish tastes great hot or cold. Naturopath approved!
