Preheat oven to 200 C. Wrap baby beetroot in foil and roast for approximately 20-30 minutes until tender. Remove from oven, and once cool enough to handle, peel the skins then cut into slices.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, add quinoa and stock and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer for around 8-10 minutes or until stock has absorbed. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork.

Heat a griddle pan or frying pan over medium-high heat, brush pumpkin slices with olive oil and grill 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked.

In a large bowl, toss quinoa with walnuts, goat's cheese and parsley, and season with salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Gently fold in the beets and pumpkin and serve immediately.
