Red Quinoa Avocado Bowl

Wegman’s just recently opened near my house and I have been loving all the food choices! My mom came across this one recipe on their website that had amazing reviews.  She had been looking for a dish she could bring to a picnic she would be attending and thought this Red Quinoa-Avocado Bowl would be a perfect vegan, gluten free meal that everyone could enjoy!  I followed this recipe exactly, but here’s the recipe to follow if it is not possible to get your hands on the Wegman’s brands of ingredients called for in the original recipe.

This recipe is adapted from here.

Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 cups cooked red quinoa (7 oz)
  • 12 ounces frozen sweet corn, thawed
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 2 avocados, cubed
  • 1/2 cup lemon vinaigrette
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Directions: Combine cooked quinoa, corn, cilantro, green onions, and tomatoes in a large bowl.  Fold in avocados and lemon vinaigrette and carefully mix until everything is well-combined.  Season with salt and pepper.

This meal was quick and easy to prepare with very little clean-up. Next time I think I will make it without the cilantro, and maybe a different herb.

Look at all those delicious ingredients!! Yum!
