This spectacularly colourful dish with its combo of fiery root vegetables, protein-packed quinoa and fragrant yogurt, is the perfect veggie-friendly dinner for two. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put all of the vegetables in a large shallow roasting tin, spoon over the harissa paste and the olive oil, then season and mix well. Roast for 40 mins, turning on occasion to ensure even cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, lemon zest, garlic and most of the herbs. Season and set aside.
  3. Heat the quinoa according to the packet instructions. To serve, spoon the roasted vegetables over the quinoa. Top with the herby yogurt, the remaining chopped herbs and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds, if you like.
