Preparation

Step 1

Vegetables: Combine all marinade ingredients in a large bowl. Cut the zucchini, squash and tomatoes and add to the marinade, mixing to coat thoroughly. Roast the garlic and shallots 8-10 minutes at 350, let cool, then chop coarsely. Grill the squash and tomatoes on the grill or in the broiler, let cool, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Quinoa: Rinse grain in cold water to remove naturally occurring resin: strain. Combine with stock (or water) in pot. Simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and the grains begin to split. Remove from pot and let cool. To serve: combine quinoa vegetables and cheese in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
