Quinoa and Roasted Vegetables

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Debra1113

Quinoa is a grain that is lighter than rice or couscous but has more protein than other grains. The recipe will serve more than 4 if you use it as a side dish rather than a main course.

This was a very tasty main dish. I added asparagus to the roasting pan to make it more veggie-heavy. This was very filling and everyone went back for seconds. I can't wait to cook again in the summer when I can add fresh veggies from the garden. Now if I could just find a more economical source for Quinoa. Wow- it is expensive!
