Quinoa with Spinach and Feta


Tasty and healthy way to enjoy Quinoa

Quinoa is versatile, healthy, delicious, and easy to make…what more can anyone ask for?!? One of my favorite recipes is quinoa tossed with crumbled feta, spinach,cherry tomatoes and you guessed it…avocados! Mom and I made this tasty treat in less than half an hour (and devoured it in half that time).
