Recipe

Sometimes simple meals are best and this easy meal of roasted vegetables, hearty quinoa, and feta cheese is delicious.  Rosemary and thyme flavor the sweet potatoes, asparagus, peppers, onion, carrots, and mushrooms and then the salty feta brings everything together.  Feel free to make it with any veggies you have around but I recommend keeping the sweet potatoes which add a hearty and sweet element.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cook the quinoa according to package directions.
  3. Place your potatoes on a microwave safe dish and par-cook for 4-8 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes and your microwave. You want the potato to be soft enough that you can easily pierce it with a fork, but not soggy. Let it cool and slice it into cubes.
  4. In a large bowl toss together all of the vegetables and sweet potato with the olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme.
  5. Arrange on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking in a single layer and roast for 15-20 minutes until everything is browned and crispy. Shake the pan once or twice during roasting. Taste before serving and add any needed salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the vegetables over the quinoa and top with feta cheese.
