Good morning and happy Saturday! Quinoa Guacamole Salad is one of my favorite recipes to make for Paul for lunch or dinner because each of the ingredients are packed with nutrition. =) The recipe is as follows (click on the ingredient whose nutrition you would like to explore):
- [Organic] White quinoa
- [Organic] Frozen Spinach
- [Organic] Tomatoes
- Two [Organic] Avacodos
Place 1 cup of [organic] white quinoa, frozen [organic] spinach (it is my preference to use frozen spinach for this recipe) and 2 cups of [purified] water into a pot over medium heat. As soon as it reaches a boil, cover the pot and lower the heat as low as possible so that it is simmering. Let simmer for about 15 minutes or until the water is completely absorbed into the quinoa.
While the quinoa cooks, prep your quacomole. The ingredients for this recipe should be based on your preferences. Place two ripe [organic] avocados in a bowl and mash them with a fork until the consistency is smooth. Then add in the ingredients of your choice. In this recipe, I added and mixed [organic] tomatoes, scallions, salt, pepper, and one lime into the avocados. You can add jalepenos, cilantro, onions, etc. Then cover and cool in the refrigerator.
When the quinoa is done cooking, serve with the guacamole for your little munchkin to enjoy =D
Tip: for extra nutrition, add a tablespoon of [organic] hemp seeds. =D
