Roasted Veggie Feta and Quinoa Salad

This is my official new favorite salad! The flavour of the roasted veggie feta and quinoa is absolutely incredible, I mean how could it not be with all my favourite things to eat. The feta balances out the sweetness of the baby beetroot and carrots providing a match made in heaven. I found the roasted veggie feta and quinoa salad works perfectly as either a side or a main if you just add some protein!  photo 3(3)
