Preheat the oven to 400°F. Start prepping when your oven comes up to temperature!


Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Bring 1 cup salted water (double for 4 people) to a boil in a small pot. Peel (if desired) and cut the carrot into ½-inch cubes. Coarsely chop the parsley. Halve and juice the lemon.

Roast the vegetables: Toss the cauliflower and carrot on a parchment-lined baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, ras el hanout, and a large pinch of salt. Wrap the garlic cloves in a small piece of tin foil with a drizzle of oil. Set the foil-wrapped garlic on the baking sheet. Roast in the centre of the oven, stirring halfway through roasting, until golden brown and the garlic is very soft, 18-20 min.


Cook the quinoa: Meanwhile, add the quinoa to the boiling water. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, until quinoa is tender and all the water has been absorbed, 12-15 min.
