For Roasted Vegetables:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lay the prepared butternut squash, asparagus, carrots, parsnip and Brussels sprouts on a Half Sheet Pan. Use parchment paper if desired.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil, Herb de Provence, garlic power and kosher salt, together. Drizzle 3/4 of this mixture over the vegetables on the sheet pan. Rub the herb mixture onto the vegetables until every vegetable is nicely coated. Add the zucchini and sliced peppers to the medium bowl with remaining herb mixture and mix until coated. Set aside.
Roast the vegetables on the baking sheet for 30 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the oven and incorporate peppers and zucchini. With an oven friendly spatula, flip the vegetables and mix in the zucchini and peppers. Roast the vegetables for another 10 minutes. When ready to serve, broil vegetables on high for 2 minutes. Build bowls with cooked quinoa, roasted vegetables, and drizzle with dressing. Serve 3-4.
