Greek Quinoa with Quinoa

This is such a great quinoa salad.  It is packed with nutrient rich ingredients and full of flavor.  Perfect for the sunny spring days we’ve been having this week!  You could even add some diced or shredded chicken and make a meal out of it.  Either way you’ll love it!

Greek Quinoa with Avocados
Submitted by Mindy ~ The Sisters Cafe

1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup water
2 Roma tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded fresh spinach
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 small avocados (or 1 large avocado), pitted, peeled, and sliced (or diced)
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

Bring quinoa and water to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. In a medium bowl, stir together quinoa, tomatoes, spinach, and onion. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, and salt. Mix with quinoa. Place on plates with avocado slices and quinoa (or just dice the avocado and sprinkle it over the top). Sprinkle with feta. Makes 4 servings.

    This looks delicious! I’ve become quite the fan of quinoa lately. If only I could get my kids on board!

    We had this today and it was delicious! I will definitely be making it again. It was fast too! Only 20 minutes tops – do all the chopping while the quinoa is cooking. Thanks for another great recipe!
