This tasty quinoa bowl with spicy roasted pumpkin is gently spiced by ginger, turmeric, and red chili flakes. It is easy, nutritious and delicious; and makes a hearty & filling gluten-free vegan meal!
I'm still all about pumpkin right now. I think we all agree that pumpkin is absolutely amazing in autumn desserts, but my goodness is it delicious when simply roasted with a few spices!
I created this when I was in need of something super nutritious. We had a sugar pumpkin sitting around and I thought what better pairing than protein-rich quinoa?
This method of roasting results in a super tasty melt-in-your-mouth version of pumpkin. You'll have trouble not eating it as soon as you remove it from the oven! But if you can wait for the delicately spiced quinoa to cook, you'll be more than happy with this delightful pairing!
This delicious spicy roasted pumpkin bowl is high in vitamins A, C, E, B6, and fiber, protein, magnesium & iron. There is no doubt that it is good for you, but it is also ridiculously-tasty-good, too!
