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!

The Alice in Wonderland theme must have been awesome!! My sister is getting into avocados (finally) and this would be a fun recipe (plus, we are adoring cashew milk!)

That pic of your two cracked me up. You guys have the best time.
We've been on an avocado kick lately. Time to amp it up with some quinoa again! I'm trying to break my newly acquired pasta habit...

Wonderful idea to celebrate National Margarita Day and any day who doesn't love avocados =) Need to make this really soon =)

Oooh, these look so good, Kristina! I love the idea of white beans with quinoa (and more) as the filling. 🙂
Sophia @Veggies Don't Bite says
If I could live on avocados I would. Oh wait, I can!! These look delish! White beans are one of my faves and with avocados and lemon and basil...I DIE.
