Quinoa & Roasted Vegetables

Today I am sharing a very healthy and delightful dish, Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables. It is such a healthy and delicious dish that will be sure to please anyone who tastes it.  It is wonderful as is, sprinkled with feta or your favorite cheese or stuff it in a brown rice tortilla for a sandwich wrap alternative. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Note: The tortilla's are best toasted slightly for a more pliable wrap.

1 cup-quinoa
1- medium zucchini
1- medium squash
1/2- vidalia onion
