    Brief Description

    I have quinoa in my apartment at all times, without fail. I put it in just about everything I make, but this is my default recipe when I just need something quick and simple to eat. It travels well, it's great cold or at room temperature, and it delivers a ton of protein. Love it!

    Notes

    The measurements of the veggies are totally up to you – I tend to like more avocado and less onion, but it doesn't matter at all. Experiment!
