Pesto Quinoa Bowl (Vegan & GF!)

You will love this healthy vegan Pesto Quinoa Bowl. This pesto grain bowl combines the best Vegan Basil Pesto with roasted spring veggies including asparagus, corn, mushrooms, and arugula. Not only is this quinoa bowl incredibly flavorful, but it is also full of nutritious greens too!

It truly amazes me I haven't brought more vegetarian quinoa recipes to the blog because I am truly IN LOVE with quinoa. Between this dish, my Black Bean Quinoa Burgers, and my Quinoa Stuffed Delicata Squash, there is no shortage of meals with quinoa in this house!
