After a week of Indian dishes, here’s a healthy Quinoa salad with peas, avocado and lots of herbs. I like to make this kind of simple dishes when I’m cooking for myself — everything goes into 1 bowl, mix and eat — that’s it, no fuss, no mess.

This recipe is from Vegetarian Times magazine and I made it as soon as I saw the recipe. It is definitely going to be in rotation in my home going forward.

  1. Green peas and avocado looks so refreshing. Nice meal to fix when your alone. For some reason I still have not acquired the taste of quinoa.
