I pulled some new recipes out of the May edition of Fitness Magazine. We tried this one tonight and loved it so much I thought I'd share it with you. I think it would be perfect for a hot summer night's easy dinner.
Greek Quinoa & Avocados
Makes 4 servings
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup water
2 roma/plum tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded fresh spinach (I only had romaine lettuce and it worked fine)
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
2 avocados, pitted, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
1. Bring quinoa and water to boil in small saucepan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
2. In a medium bowl, stir together quinoa, tomatoes, spinach and onion.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Mix with quinoa.
4. Place spinach leaves on plates with avocado slices and top with quinoa. Sprinkle with feta.

I would've had a picture but we ate it up too quickly for that! I do have one serving left since the girls only ate 1 between the two of them (Lindz liked it, Kera did not which wasn't too surprising)--and I'm eating it for lunch tomorrow! Yum! :-)
