Grilled Spring Onion Quinoa

Grilled Spring Onion Quinoa

It has been the summer of grilling at our house this year. I quickly realized that quinoa is a perfect side with almost anything coming off the grill as it is easy and flavorful. Plus the leftover quinoa is the next day’s lunch, loaded with whole gains and protein. This version with lots of tasty grilled veggies was one of the favorites I made all summer. It can’t be simpler and frankly if you are looking for a vegetarian meal this would be a great too. I love the earthy tastes of the spring onions and mushrooms with the quinoa they all just play so well together. Add the brightness of the lemon, green beans and peas and this dish really is a nice balance of flavors.
