Do you have fruits or vegetables that you can't wait to be back in season and reappear in the supermarket? I love asparagus and every year, when spring comes around, I begin to check to see if they're back! As soon as the price lowers, I buy asparagus for my family. I like asparagus so much that sometimes I eat it with just mayo with chipotle, but I also like adding it to one of my favorite lunch dishes: the quinoa burrito bowl. It's a much more nutritious option than the version made with rice and you can easily add ingredients to your liking. I invite you to try it! MORE + LESS -
