3-Ingredient Quinoa Recipe

I’m a huge fan of quinoa. It’s a healthy replacement for grains like rice and couscous, and it can be incorporated into so many different dishes. My favorite quinoa recipe is actually one I came up with on my own when I was throwing together random ingredients in my kitchen. It contains only three ingredients: quinoa, avocado, and feta cheese.

Quinoa, avocado, feta

To make, mash up half an avocado and mix into one serving of cooked quinoa. Add a pinch or two of crumbled feta, and stir to combine.

The combination of avocado and quinoa creates a consistency that’s extremely satisfying to eat, and the addition of feta adds the perfect hint of salt. This can be served hot or cold, and is just as excellent as a side dish as it is on its own. I seriously urge you to try this recipe. Jana had a taste a few months ago and she’s been hooked ever since!

I am a celiac, but I can eat quinoa because it’s wheat & gluten free! It’s very rare that I find inventive celiac recipe’s on the net!
More please!

I literally eat this everyday :) I’m gluten intolerant, and hate cooking – so this is perfect for me. Adding lemon juice is my final step though. I love citrus with the salty feta and creamy avocado.

Sounds delicious.. but I’m vegan :(
Does anyone have an idea for replacing the feta in something vegan?

Thanks for sharing! I’ve had zero luck so far when cooking with quinoa. This looks so easy and yummy! Will try tonight.

Wonder if it would be good with goat cheese?

Rogue -August 7, 2013, 2:39PM

This sounds amazing, minus the cheese of course. I wouldn’t even replace it with anything, but you could use nutritional yeast instead. Not only is it vegan friendly, but also much healthier!

I tried this last night! Simple, yummy and healthy. Thanks again!

I made this tonight and it was delicious! Easy and so filling. The feta really makes the dish.
