Full recipe in YouTube video below!
1 pound Asparagus-trimmed
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon Avocado/Olive Oil
1/4 cup fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
2 cloves Garlic- crushed
2 cups cooked Quinoa (I cook mine in broth for added flavor)
1 can Chickpeas- drained & rinsed
1/4 cup thin sliced Scallions
2 ounces Feta Cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Pre heat oven to 400
Place the asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet and toss with 1 teaspoon of oil and season with salt and pepper.
Pop in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until tender. The thickness of your asparagus will determine how long it needs to cook for. Cool and cut into 1-inch pieces.
Cook quinoa per package directions.
In a small bowl, combine the rest of the oil, lemon juice, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and which together. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine cooked quinoa, chickpeas, scallions, and asparagus.
Drizzle the dressing over the top and gently toss everything together. Adjust seasonings if needed.
Transfer into a serving bowl and top with crumbled feta cheese. Serve and enjoy!
