QUINOA AVOCADO SPINACH POWER SALAD

Easy Quinoa Power Salad with creamy avocado! One of our all-time favorite salads that's full of energizing, plant-based goodness. (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:20 minutes
Total Time:25 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup quinoa (dry, uncooked)
  • 2 medium avocados
  • 3 oz. baby spinach (more as desired)
  • 8 oz. cherry tomatoes
  • 3 green onions
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (I use 2)
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Rinse and cook quinoa according to package directions.*
  • Meanwhile, roughly chop the spinach. Place in a large bowl.
  • Mince garlic, and add to spinach.
  • Slice the green onions, halve the cherry tomatoes, and dice the avocado.
  • When quinoa is done cooking, add it to the large bowl with spinach and toss. (The heat from the quinoa will lightly wilt the spinach and mellow the garlic.)
  • Add the green onions, tomatoes, red wine vinegar, and salt. Stir to combine.
  • Add the avocado and lightly toss.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate to let flavors blend more.

NOTES

*To cook quinoa: I use a ratio of 1 cup quinoa to 1 1/2 cups water for fluffier quinoa. (You can also use vegetable broth for more flavor.)
