Cooking Together…Quinoa Salad with Roasted Vegetables

The finished project!

This week’s recipe for Quinoa Salad with Roasted Vegetables came from Deliciously Organic. Here’s the recipe:

Here are my thoughts on the recipe:

Ease of preparation: This was an easy dish, but took a little time to cut the vegetables and roast them.

Overall opinion: I enjoyed this dish. I think it would be great as a side dish, or you could add in chicken for a main dish.

Vegetables cut up and ready to roast!

Husband thoughts: Unfortunately, he didn’t like this at all. But…he’s not a fan of quinoa so that could have something to do with it. When I asked him what he didn’t like about it, his exact words were, “The texture, the flavor, and well…everything.” Ouch.

Would you have it again: Well, I’ll be having it for lunch all week because it made a lot and I’m the only one who will be eating it. I would make it again to bring as a side dish to a potluck or to have on hand for the week as a quick and nutritious lunch, but I won’t be serving it for dinner again anytime soon.

Did you omit anything? Nope.

Did you add anything? Thanks to some great suggestions from some of you, I added sweet potatoes, and some toasted pinenuts. They were my two favorite flavors in the dish, so I’m glad I did, and I highly recommend it.

How did you serve it? We had it for dinner, and it was a little lacking on it’s own. I would recommend adding chicken if serving it for a main dish, or just serving it as a side dish in a meal.

Would you change anything next time: Nope.

General Comments: Don’t let my husband’s comments prevent you from trying this one. It really was delicious.

And our recipe for next week:
