Ingredients

  • 1

    cup quinoa

  • 2

    cups water

  • 4

    medium carrots

  • 1

    zucchini

  • 8

    spears of asparagus

  • 1

    Tbsp rice wine vinegar

  • 2

    Tbsp olive oil

  • 1

    tsp thyme

  • black pepper to taste

Directions

Place water in a small covered saucepan and bring to a boil. Add quinoa and stir. Reduce heat to a simmer and replace lid. Simmer for 11 to 12 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Meanwhile using a "Y" shaped peeler, peel the carrots and zucchini into strips. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus and cut the spears into 2-inch sections. Steam the vegetables for 3 to 4 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, thyme and olive oil. Once the quinoa is cooked, fluff it with a fork. Place 1/2 cup of quinoa on each plate and top with a quarter of the vegetables on top of each serving. Top with about 2 teaspoons of the vinaigrette on each serving.
