  1. Add quinoa to a pot and fill with water. Swish grains around to rinse well, drain, and add back to pot. Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until liquid is absorbed, 10-15 minutes.
  2. Combine garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, thyme, and black pepper in a small bowl and whisk well. Set aside.
  3. Heat grill and grilling tray.
  4. Place vegetables and shrimp in a large bowl; add about 1/3 of the vinaigrette (about 3 tablespoons) and toss.
  5. Spread shrimp-vegetable mixture over hot grilling tray.
  6. Grill, turning shrimp and vegetables, until the flesh of the shrimp is an opaque color, about 5 minutes. Remove from grill.
  7. Serve grill mixture over cooked quinoa, and drizzle with vinaigrette.

Recipe Tips

Use brown rice, couscous, grits, or cracked wheat in place of quinoa.

No grill pan? You can saute the shrimp and vegetables in a pan over medium high heat.
