Food Yoga – Eggplant and Asparagus Over Quinoa


  • 2 cups eggplant cubed
  • 1/2 lb baby asparagus ( or regular is fine- baby was on sale)
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1lb mushrooms sliced
  • juice from one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400° or heat up a grill pan or your grill
  2. In a medium/large bowl combine spices, olive oil and lemon juice
  3. Toss all veggies in spice mixture
  4. Place veggies on a roasting pan
  5. Roast/Grill for 25-30 minutes
  6. Prepare rice and quinoa according to package directions
  7. Arrange veggies on top of rice and serve!
I put a dollop of plain soy yogurt that was mixed with tomatoes, chopped cukes and some spices on top- but that’s completely up to you!! I’ve used greek yogurt in the past and didn’t miss it. Squeeze some lemon and you get the same tangy flavor.
Namaste y’all!

    1. Thanks🌻 This is one of my favorites. I’m an eggplant fanatic. I need to do a post in which I list the ways that I love eggplant- maybe write a sonnet. Thanks for checking out my blog. Om shanti.
