Quinoa with Avocado, Garbanzo Beans, and Tomatoes


My brother brought a bunch of avocados from California when he came last week.  Most of them went to batches of guacamole, but one lucky one got made into this scrumptious salad.  It is pretty easy and really filling. We liked it so much I'm making a big batch this week for our lunches.

Quinoa with Avocado, Garbanzo Beans, and Tomatoes
From: Elizabeth's Dutch Oven
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min

1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 avocado, sliced/chunked
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1 can (14oz) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
juice of 1-2 limes
salt and pepper

1.  Cook quinoa according directions (mine: mixed 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water, brought to boil and let simmer covered for 10-13 minutes).

2. While quinoa is cooking, prepare avocado, tomatoes, and garbanzo beans

3.  When quinoa is done cooking, place in large bowl, stir in tomatoes, garbanzos and juice of 1-2 limes (I used 1 1/2 and they were pretty juice limes).  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in Avocados last.  Serve.
