Vegan Avocado Quinoa Recipe

A Reader Recipe: Chard, Avocado, Asparagus Quinoa

How good does this quinoa dish look from FitSugar reader lauren? She posted her recipe in the Healthy Recipe community group.

After seeing FitSugar's recent post about vegan avocado dishes, I kept thinking about a recent dinner I made. It was more of a fluke since I was just using everything in my fridge, but to my surprise the resulting dish is delicious! It was pretty easy to make and even better the next day, when I took it to work for lunch. I waited for everything to cool since I wasn't in the mood for a hot meal but I imagine warm would be just as good! Next time, I will add some fresh herbs too like basil.

Find out how to make the recipe when you read more!

Recipe
1 cup of quinoa
1 bunch of rainbow chard, roughly chopped
1 bunch of asparagus, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon quality olive oil
1 ripe avocado, sliced into bite size pieces
salt
1/8 cup quality olive oil, I used orange infused
1-2 tablespoons of champagne vinegar, any vinegar would work

Directions: Cook the quinoa. Saute the asparagus and rainbow chard in one tablespoon olive oil until cooked. In a small glass or jar mix the olive oil and vinegar together. Once everything is ready mix the quinoa, asparagus, chard, and vinaigrette in a large bowl with the avocado. Season with salt and enjoy!

Makes about 4-6 servings.

This was delicious! \u00a0I could not find champagne vinegar so used white wine vinegar. \u00a0I put two tablespoons in, but next time will use a tiny bit more. \u00a0Made with just picked chard from the garden. \u00a0Wonderful.
