Roast Vegetable Quinoa Salad


I generally like to cook once, eat twice where possible. Anything to make my day and food choices, that little bit easier.

This salad is amazing to take for lunch the next day as you can eat it cold!


You can use any veggies you have left over in your fridge! Throw them all together in the oven, roast away, whip up your quinoa and boom you have dinner (and lunch for tomorrow) ummm hello EASY!

Such a nutrient-dense meal to throw together, it wont leave you feeling heavy or bloated. Just full and healthy AF!


The dressing is seriously devine, so buttery and yummy.

Let me know if you make this delish wholesome salad, if you used different veggies and how it turned out!
