Heat until boiling and then reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until all water is absorbed. Fluff with a fork when finished.
  3. While quinoa is cooking, wash and prepare asparagus by cutting off the bottom ½-1” of the stalk. Lightly spray or toss in 1 tsp avocado oil and 1 tsp garlic. Spread out asparagus on a cooking sheet and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus.
  4. Pour 1 box of Brandless lentil soup into a small saucepan and heat on medium until boiling, reduce heat and let simmer for 1 minute.
