Avocado & Quinoa salad recipe

Vegan,  gluten-free, wheat-free

Avocado is one of my favourite foods along with lime and garlic....yum!

I have been trying to up my protein recently and quinoa is considered to be a complete protein which is amazing. It's also high in vitamins and nutrients, great for a vegan diet!

This salad is absolutely divine, fresh and extremely tasty!
It's packed full of flavour. It's nice to have the different textures, soft avocado, crisp tomatoes and crispy salad leaves.
It's a salad that can be whipped up fast and enjoyed whenever as its healthy & guilt-free.

You can always take it out and about with you or for picnics.

Preparation- 20 minutes
Cooking time- Around 15 minutes
Serves- 4
Level- Easy

-1/2 litre (500ml) of water
-230g quinoa
-2 ripe avocado (cubed)
-1 large garlic clove (crushed)
-1/2 lime (juice)
-Handful of cherry tomatoes (halved)
-4 jalapeno peppers (finely sliced)

-Corriander & salad leaves (to garnish)

Step 1- Wash the quinoa thoroughly.

Step 2- Add the water into a large saucepan and bring to the boil.

Step 3- Add in the quinoa and bring to the boil again. Stir often to prevent sticking.
