Quinoa is a little pricy and this recipe does take a little more time and effort than others, but I think it’s well worth it! This has to be one of my favourite dinners as it’s super healthy and full of flavour. Please leave comments or like if you enjoyed this post or have tried out the recipe. Thanks šŸ™‚

4. Place all ingredients from sector 3 into a separate oven tray and put into oven. Flip every 10 minutes.

5. In a bowl, add all ingredients from sector 4 and stir with a spoon until combined. Set aside.

6. After ingredients from sector 3 have been in oven for around 40 minutes, add them to ingredients from sector 2. Also add the chickpeas and kidney beans then put tray back in oven.

7. After 20 minutes, remove tray from oven and mix inĀ the quinoa and sauce (bowl of sector 4 ingredients).Ā Put tray back in oven for 10 minutes, then you’re done.
