  1. Fill a saucepan halfway with water; bring to the boil. Add asparagus and cook uncovered until tender but still crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook until onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in cooked quinoa, vegetable stock and turmeric; cook until flavours combine, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in blanched asparagus, nutritional yeast and lemon juice; cook and stir for about 3 to 4 minutes.
