- 1⁄2 cup minced fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley
- Preheat oven to 400°F Scrub beets. Place each beet on a piece of foil large enough to wrap it well. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on each beet & wrap. Place foil wrapped beets on a baking tray & roast for 1 hour 15 minutes. Let cool a bit, unwrap, cut off top & stem, peel. Cut beets into large dice while still on foil. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Line a large baking tray with Reynold's Wrap foil. Place cut up zucchini & red bell pepper on tray. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast for just 15 minutes - this softens the vegetables so they are not raw without softening them too much. Remove from oven & sprinkle with kosher salt.
- Combine cooked quinoa & cooked black beans. Add minced shallot, garlic, jalapeno, lemon zest & oregano. Stir well. Add roasted vegetables. Stir well.
- Combine extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice & about 1/2tsp salt. Whisk well. Pour over pilaf & stir very well to combine. Add parsley & stir well one more time.
