Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables with White beans and Quinoa

by Debra P

Cut the following migraineur-friendly veges into chunks and place on aluminium foil on a roasting pan:

2 zucchini, 1 eggplant (or pumpkin), 1 red and 1 green capsicum, 1 leek, 3 - 4 cloves of garlic. Sprinkle with fresh thyme, cayenne pepper, paprika and drizzle generously with olive oil and mix to combine.

Roast in a medium hot oven for approx. 30 - 40 mins, occasionally moving the veg and checking that it doesn't overcook.

Cook the quinoa, using one cup grain to one and a half cups water.

Use 1 cup black-eye beans, chickpeas, or any white beans, which have been pre-soaked and cooked till tender. (Quick soaking method is best as beans don't ferment - bring rinsed beans to the boil for 10 mins. Switch off heat and leave for 2-4 hrs. Bring back to the boil and cook until tender).

Put the roasted veges into a bowl, lift the aluminum foil and pour the oil and juices over the veg. Mix in the beans.

Serve the vegetable/bean mix over the quinoa - a delicious gluten-free, satisfying meal. Use for leftovers for lunch next day. 'Old' food is a definite trigger for me but there is never any of this left after 48 hours! Following a migraine-friendly diet has helped me so much.
