Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the zucchini into 2cm chunks. Slice the capsicum into 2cm strips. Cut the red onion into 2cm wedges. Cut the beetroot into 1cm cubes. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and roast until tender, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Beetroot stays firm when cooked. It's done when you can pierce it with a fork.
While the veggies are roasting, finely chop the garlic. Zest the lemon to get a generous pinch, then slice into wedges. In a small bowl, combine the tahini with a good squeeze of lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Rub the chicken tenderloins with the chermoula spice blend and season with salt and pepper.
Rinse the quinoa well. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Place the quinoa, the water and crumbled chicken stock (1 cube for 2 people / 2 cubes for 4 people) in the pan and cover with a lid. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 8-10 minutes. Cover to keep warm.
While the quinoa is cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, in batches, until cooked through, 3-5 minutes (depending on thickness). TIP: Don't worry if the chicken chars a bit, this adds to the flavour!
Add the roast veggies, lemon zest, a squeeze of lemon juice and the baby spinach leaves to the quinoa. Toss to combine and season to taste.
Divide the roast veggie quinoa between bowls. Top with the chermoula chicken. Drizzle over the lemon-tahini dressing. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
