Roasted Veggies + Quinoa = Delicious and super healthy side dish!

We love it with Lemon Pepper Fish from the grill. Recipe here!

Can't wait to try and make this - it was DELISH! Question for you...where do you buy your seafood, Costco?

Linds said...

Yes, I buy the bags or frozen mahi-mahi, or tilapia at Costco. I like them because each piece of fish is individually wrapped so you only take out and use what you need. I also got my quinoa at Costco!

I have not been able to make a quinoa that hubby likes but I think this might just work. You have enough to disguise it.

I get my salmon at Costco.

I have Quinoa in my cupboard but am afraid to make it. Thanks for the encouragement and the recipe!
