    Step 1

    Preheat your oven to oven to 350 degrees. Toss your cauliflower, carrots, leeks, and mushrooms with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. Arrange in a single layer on your baking sheet and place the whole head of garlic right on the pan. Roast the vegetables for 45 minutes or until tender.

    Step 2

    While the veggies cook, prepare your quinoa. In a small pan, heat the 2 cups of liquid over medium heat. Add the quinoa and bring to a boil. Cook until the liquid has absorbed completely, then cover, lower the heat and cook for another 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and transfer to a mixing bowl.

    Step 3

    Bring a pot of water to boil and blanche your kale for 1-2 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Add the kale to the mixing bowl with the quinoa. Add in the roasted vegetables, except the garlic head. Remove 3 or 4 of the garlic cloves from their jackets and gently mash with a fork on a flat surface. Add the mashed, roasted garlic to the bowl. Finally, add chopped parsley and mix everything together. Add a little olive oil if the mixture is dry. Check for salt and pepper and serve.
