Preheat the oven to 400F (200C)

In a saucepan combine the quinoa and vegetable stock or water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed.

In a bowl, toss the mixed vegetables with olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread the vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes or until tender and slightly caramelised.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, roasted vegetables, chopped parsley, chopped mint and toasted almonds. Toss together with the tahini dressing.
