Ingredients

1 cup of white quinoa
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 pepper (green or yellow), chopped
1 can of black beans, drained/rinsed*
2 avocados, sliced
4 green onions, chopped
1 cup of hot or mild Salsa*

Optional: 1 cup of chopped cilantro and cheddar cheese (or vegan alternative)

A little bit of squeezed lime

Preparation

Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package.
While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the rest of the ingredients.
When quinoa is cooked, set aside and let cool.  Add the rest of the ingredients to the quinoa, add the seasoning and mix well.

Note: This recipe can be served hot or cold.

*Both the black beans and the salsa may contain gluten.  If you rinse the beans very well most people can tolerate them.  If you prepare your own salsa  that can also be gluten free.

Recommendations: Can we be served in (corn) taco shells or with tortilla chips.
