No Recipe Recipe: Quinoa with Roasted Veggies and Pesto

This is another quick and easy dish to make with just a few ingredients. It’s also a good way to use up some of the veggies you may have laying around.

Quinoa with Roasted Veggies and Pesto

What You’ll Need

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • Assorted Veggies: I used carrots, red peppers, onions, fennel, mushrooms, and whole garlic cloves
  • Olive Oil
  • Store bought pesto
  • lemon juice
  • Parmesan Cheese

Chop your veggies and place on a pan and drizzle with a nice amount of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Cook veggies in a 400 degree oven until veggies are soft and have browned slightly. Add veggies to quinoa and stir in pesto (i used about 2 heaping teaspoons) Add lemon juice, from half a lemon parmesan cheese to your taste. Season with salt and pepper and your all set. This dish is great as a vegetarian main dish or as a side dish with fish or chicken.
