Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook quinoa according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, halve the cherry tomatoes, toss in 1/2 T olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Take out of the oven and let cool.

For vinaigrette, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, basil, crushed red pepper and salt + pepper.

To serve, fold together chopped spinach, garbanzo beans, cherry tomatoes, cooked quinoa + spicy lemon vinaigrette in a large bowl. Garnish with your choice of additions.
