Quinoa Salad

Serves: 4-6 people as a side dish or light lunch
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients:
2 cup quinoa
4 cups water
1 avocado – peeled, pitted and diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 red pepper roasted, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/2 cup cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large lime juiced
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Chili Garlic Sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Rinse the quinoa thoroughly before cooking to remove the bitter coating on the grains. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed. Once cooked let the quinoa cold down in the refrigerate. Once the quinoa has chilled, gently stir in the tomatoes, roasted pepper, onion, cilantro and garlic. Season with lime juice, coconut oil, salt, and pepper and mix together. Enjoy with your favorite poultry or as a light lunch.
