Roasted Red Pepper & Asparagus Quinoa | A light but extremely flavorful dish - you can't go wrong with quinoa!

Hello, all!
Don't know if you can see me...but I'm over here on the Quinoa Bandwagon!!

Oh yes, I made that joke :) A really lame one.
Don't mind me over here just giggling about the corny hilariousness.

Roasted Red Pepper & Asparagus Quinoa | A light but extremely flavorful dish - you can't go wrong with quinoa!

Like I said, I am on board with this quinoa craze. It's just one of the most versatile and delicious of grains. It can be in savory or sweet dishes from breakfast to dinner to dessert. So what's not to like about it?

This fabulous recipe comes straight from Jocelyn of Inside BruCrew Life. She is always posting some amazing looking sweets, but she doesn't shy away from posting some incredible main dish/savory recipes too - like this one!

There are few ingredients, but that doesn't mean it isn't flavorful. The little bit in the dish goes a long way. It's perfection - y'all have to try it!
