Fresh, Fast..Hot or Cold ...Side or Main Dish

photo & recipe cred to joyfulhealthyeats.com

Possibilities are endless with this one....
I wanted to be sure that my friends had this recipe to try....you know it is easy if I tried it!
With my husband playing sous chef, (while I played taxi driver)- he finished roasting the asparagus and cooked a 1/2 cup of quinoa.
Upon my return, we tossed:
  • roasted pecans
  • roasted asparagus cut into 2 inch bites
  • 1/4 cup feta
  • drizzle of balsamic and olive oil
  • cooked quinoa
What would I change?
  • more vegetables:  maybe roasted brussels sprouts, sun dried tomatoes- etc
  • steam the asparagus vs roast
  • grilled chicken?
Really- this recipe is a base for so many possibilities- let me know if you try your own version ....
p.s. such a good balance of nutrients in this dish including healthy fats from the pecans (especially high in omega 6 fatty acids) plus olive oil, lots of fiber, gluten free
