This is a recipe I have been meaning to share forever. I posted it on Instagram just once and have been receiving comments, emails, tweets about it ever since!
- and you know what, this recipe is worth every request!
This Avocado Quinoa dish is quite possibly my favourite quick and easy quinoa dish. It's fast, nutritious and delicious and can be served as a side dish - or as your main meal. It literally takes about 15-20 minutes to make - and even less time if you have cooked quinoa in your fridge!
Avocado Quinoa Recipe - serves one but easily multiplied!
gluten free, low fat, can be vegan/dairy free
1/4 cup raw quinoa
1/4- 1/2 ripe avocado (depending on the size)
Garlic salt, salt and pepper - to taste
Optional: additional herbs/spices, cheese, seasoned cooked chicken/meat
Cook your quinoa according to directions.
Once your quinoa is cooked, mash the avocado and mix through the quinoa over a low heat.
Add a little bit of water, if needed, so that your avocado mixes through the quinoa and there are no longer any clumps.
Add in seasonings to taste and allow mixture to heat through.
Serve immediately, topping with cheese if desired.
The cheese you see on top of the quinoa above is just a mexican cheese blend, however, I usually use parmesan cheese, feta cheese or any other grated cheese I have around.
And there you have it! Easy as pie... well.. quinoa.
So tell me, what is your go-to quick dinner meal?
For me, this quinoa is really quick to whip up - but I also like having Spinach and Feta Bakes and Cheesy Quinoa Bakes on hand for days when I don't have time or don't feel like cooking.
