Avocado and quinoa salad

Prep

Cook

Total

Yield 2 servings

It is such a satisfying salad packed with nutrients. I love sweet miso or rich soy sauce dressing, you can also chop some chillies if you like it spicier.

Shop for ripe avocado, good quality quinoa and organic kale. The latter will go for 6-7 minutes to the oven to make a bunch of kale crisps!

Instructions

Cook your quinoa as per pack instructions. Make sure you cook it in plenty of water.

Chop avocado, tomato and cucumber.

Place your kale pieces on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil or sunflower oil and roast on a full for 5-6 minutes, turning halfway. You should get slightly brown colour but the stems should still be quite green. Put it aside to cool, your kale crisps will become crispy in just a minute.

Mix your dressing ingredients and you are ready to serve. Alternatively, put veggies and quinoa separate from kale crisps in your salad box, pour dressing in a separate container too and you are ready to take it to work to enjoy for lunch.
