Method: 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, stir together squash, sweet potato, onion granules, salt and pepper until evenly coated. Place on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast about 40 minutes or until squash and potatoes are fork-tender.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepot bring quinoa and broth to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook about 15 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, toss together roasted vegetables, quinoa, almonds, parsley and lemon juice. Serve warm or at room temperature.
