Lemon Asparagus Quinoa Recipe

Here is another quick and easy and “Clean Eating” quinoa recipe for you to try.  You could even kick it up a notch with a little feta and balsamic vinegar too.

I had this with the wonderful Italian Grilled Chicken this week.  For lunch I cut up the chicken and mixed it all together.  So good!!


1 cup quinoa, measured dry and then cooked

2 TBSP olive oil

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 TBSP of lemon juice

1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces


1. Cook quinoa as directed. Set aside covered for 10 minutes and the fluff with a fork.

2. Cook the asparagus in microwave with 1 TBSP of olive oil and garlic for about 5 minutes or more if you prefer more “cooked”

3. Stir the cooked asparagus into the quinoa and add the lemon juice and the other 1 TBSP of olive oil.


I am sharing this recipe at some of these great Weekly Linky Parties.

I have some brussel sprouts in the fridge. Think I will make this and sub out the brussels for the asparagus.
