Tonight’s quick meal was so beautiful I decided to share it with you right now. While I was working this afternoon, I roasted veggies with a quick roasting method and with the veggies in my refrigerator from our local Arizona farmers. At the same time I cooked a quick batch of Turmeric Quinoa. Have fun roasting all kinds of veggies with this simple culinary technique.
