- POSITION rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Soak wooden skewers in a baking dish filled with hot water.
- STIR flax meal with 3 tbsp water in a small bowl. Let stand until thickened, about 10 min. Meanwhile, stir zucchini, bell pepper and mushrooms with 2 tbsp oil, garlic spice blend and 1 tbsp lemon juice in a large bowl. Thread vegetables onto skewers; arrange on a baking sheet.
- ROAST, flipping halfway, until vegetables are fork-tender and lightly charred around edges, 14 to 15 min.
- SCRAPE flax mixture into a food processor or blender along with garlic, 2 tbsp lemon juice and salt. Whirl to combine. With motor running, slowly add remaining 3/4 cup oil and whirl until thick.
- SERVE skewers on quinoa. Stir parsley into sauce, then drizzle or dollop on skewers. Top with shredded lettuce and pickled turnips, if desired.
