    jewelsf's Note:

    Quinoa is a wonderful thing to have on hand. It is considered a supergrain because it is a complete protein. You could use another grain in this recipe and I'm sure it would be just as yummy. The recipe is fairly simple, and consists of the types of ingredients that I usually have on hand, particularly in the spring and early summer when fresh asparagus is on sale. I hope you enjoy it!
