Lemon Thyme Pork Chops with Quinoa, Asparagus & Red Peppers

Our family has a few favorite recipes that we tend to turn to again and again. Who doesn’t love a classic pork chop, paired with some veggies, or a salad. With Spring having arrived here in St. Louis, my asparagus and herbs are already growing like crazy in my garden and I already see signs of baby peppers. I wanted to update our normal pork chop recipe with a fun twist for Spring. Enter in these delicious, Lemon Thyme Pork Chops with Quinoa, Asparagus & Red Peppers. It’s an entire meal in itself and is a quick and easy recipe to boot. Can’t beat that, since easy and quick are the name of the game in this house.

As usual, the real test is, can I get five hungry teenagers and a picky toddler to eat it? Success! They devoured them and several wanted more. The light lemon and thyme flavor was just what the pork chops needed. Serving them over a bed of quinoa tossed with fresh asparagus and red peppers was the perfect addition to fill everyone up.

I got a chance to use my  new Farberware New Traditions Cookware in Aqua to make this meal, and I just loved how great it was. You can find out more about that below AND you can enter to win your own Farberware New Traditions Cookware set.
