Lemon Quinoa with Seasonal Veggies

Wow where is the time going?!

Life seems to have kicked up a gear at the moment and not only are Mr B and I super busy but of an evening we are completely buggered so we have been relying on old faithful's like lasagne, curried sausages and the occasional indulgence in chip sandwiches......

The unfortunate issue with that is that I just don't have that much to tell you about at the moment.....

Luckily whilst flicking through the camera, willing some photos of an un-posted recipe to show up.....they did!

I completely forgot about this Lemon Quinoa and Seasonal Veggie Salad, goodness knows how because it is one of my favourites!

This is a really lovely salad with lots of fresh flavours and can easily be adapted depending on what's in season at the time. Also if you are worried about this maybe not being 'man friendly' it makes a beautiful side dish when served with lamb or veal.

Lemon Quinoa with Seasonal Veggies - Serves 2

200g sliced button mushrooms
2 red onions, quartered
2 whole garlic cloves
4 carrots, peeled, chopped into chunks
4 zucchini, thickly sliced
250g cherry tomaotes
olive oil
250g pkt 90 second brown rice and quinoa
420g can chickpeas, drained
Garlic sauce (optional)

 Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Place veggies in tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until soft. Add the chickpeas and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Cook brown rice and quinoa as per packet directions.

Toss quinoa through the veggies and serve with garlic sauce.
