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

DIRECTIONS

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.

ENJOY!!
