Asparagus And Quinoa Side Dish

Make our Quinoa Side Dish featuring Asparagus and Spinach for a hearty low carbohydrate option for your meal plan! Healthy and delicious!


  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 2 cups Baby Spinach
  • ½ cup Parmesan
  • ½ small onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Prepare quinoa according to package directions. You may use a rice cooker for this to make it easier.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add in the minced garlic, asparagus, and onion and cook over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until tender. I prefer my asparagus a bit less tender, so you can add it in last if you prefer.
  3. Add the spinach to the mixture and cook 3-4 minutes or until it wilts.
  4. Next, add the already prepared quinoa and stir the mixture to combine all the ingredients.
  5. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then stir in Parmesan cheese.
  6. Stir the mixture allowing the cheese to melt.
  7. Add salt & pepper to taste.
