Recipe by Alicia Lamore
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 15 mins (can do both steps at the same time)
Yield: 6 servings

  • 2 cups of quinoa
  • 1/2 a bundle of kale
  • 2 bell peppers (different colours)
  • 3/4 cup of parsley (chopped)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 small cantaloupe
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tsp assorted spices (basil, garlic red pepper, salt, pepper)

Place 4 cups of water and 2 cups of quinoa in a pot and bring to a boil. Then cover and reduce the heat to low and cook for about 15 minutes. While it’s cooking, wash and chop all your vegetables and place in a bowl. Place quinoa into a large bowl and flake it with a fork to avoid any clumps. Once it's cool, mix in vegetables and spices. Place portions in serving dishes and garnish with slices of fresh cantaloupe and avocado. Serve and enjoy! 

I love this recipe because it's light and I never seem to get tired of it. If you need some protein, try adding 4oz of grilled chicken breast on top instead of the cantaloupe and avocado for a more complete meal, depending on your health goals. 

Have a great Saturday everyone! Hope you all had a productive first week back at school or work.
