Ingredients
  • 2 cups of Texas Caviar recipe
  • 1 cup dry quinoa; soaked and rinsed
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 lime; juiced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro; chopped
  • Sriracha hot sauce or hot sauce of your choice
Instructions
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of vegetable broth to a boil.
  2. Add in rinsed quinoa and bring mixture back up to a boil. Cover saucepan and turn heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes or until all of liquid is absorbed.
  3. When finished, remove from heat, remove lid, stir, and set aside to cool. You will want quinoa to cool to room temperature before using it.
  4. Prepare your Texas Caviar mixture (link to recipe above).
  5. When quinoa has cooled to room temperature, place quinoa into a large mixing bowl and mix in two cups of the Texas Caviar mixture, making sure to include some of the dressing. Stir to thoroughly combine.
  6. Cut your ripe avocado in half and carefully remove the pit.
  7. With a large spoon, gently scoop around the edges to scoop out your avocado. Place avocado halves on a plate and coat thoroughly with your lime juice to add extra flavor and prevent the avocado from browning.
  8. With a spoon, carefully fill your avocado halves with the quinoa mixture.
  9. Drizzle some of the dressing from the Texas Caviar on top, and finish off with a drizzle of hot sauce and freshly chopped cilantro.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
