These lemon basil quinoa stuffed avocados are brightly flavored and protein powered. Stuffed avocados with flavors of spring!
recipe originally published February 22, 2016
I am in a springy good mood, which is influencing my recipes lately. Starting with this one.
Brightly flavored quinoa and creamy cool avocado - these lemon basil quinoa stuffed avocados are my latest daily lunch. At the beginning of the week, I make a big batch of this Cashew Cream Quinoa. At lunch time, all I have to do is slice an avocado and fill it! I usually warm up the quinoa before topping the avocado, but it works as a cold 'salad' too.
The quinoa also works in a wrap, rolled up with a bunch of crisp lettuce!

I have been so happy about the longer sunny hours too. Whenever 5 pm rolls around, I can't believe my good fortune that it's still bright out. Your stuffed avocados look like a great way to celebrate the change of seasons!
