Directions

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Spread quinoa onto a baking sheet and cool to room temperature, at least 30 minutes.
  3. Transfer quinoa to a large bowl and gently fold in avocado and pomegranate seeds. Drizzle olive oil over quinoa mixture and toss to coat; mix in cilantro and lemon juice.

Made this last night for dinner! It was great! The only change I made was substituting broth for water when cooking the quinoa for more flavor and I added some salt. Remember to rinse the quinoa a few times to get rid of the bitter taste.

So yummy! Pomegranates were not available when I made this so I just left them out and it was still incredible. Definitely a recipe for an avocado lover
