Easy Recipe For Roasted Asparagus and Mushroom Quinoa

Roasted Asparagus and Mushroom Quinoa

YumSugar member Dessert Plate Design has a newfound love for quinoa, and shares one of her favorite ways to enjoy it in our Kitchen Goddess cooking group.

I have a love for roasting vegetables and honestly it's the most low maintenance way to prepare veggies. This week I stumbled upon a great combination using some fresh produce I picked up at the store and quinoa, my new favorite go-to grain.

To plate, I scooped a little mound of the grain into a deep bowl, arranged the mushrooms and asparagus, then shaved a few long curls of hard Parmesan over the top . . . then ate within 5 minutes.
