  1. Very nice dish, with a great presentation! The avocados at the store were a little small, so I served them up two halves per person, worked great. I used quinoa and omitted the salt. Thanks for sharing! Veg*n Swap 36
  2. We did not know amaranth grains! This was good occasion to try this recipe and it was really successful in my family.<br/>Thanks for posting this recipe<br/>If quinoa or amarath is not available, I suggest to try this recipe with couscous!
  3. I really enjoyed this....these are some of my favourite ingredients so I was pretty sure I would. Not that you need to, it's tasty as is, but I added a few extra things (broth to cook the quinoa in, and fresh chives in the salad). I think some sage or thyme might be nice next time as well - any fresh herb for that matter. I cut the avocado the way I always do, scoring the flesh in both directions to the bottom so the knife skims the inside of the shell without going through. And then I scoop out the pieces with a tablespoon. My avocado loving daughter thinks the bowl is pretty cool. I was thinking this would just be part of our meal, but it was so filling we didn't want anything else. Thanks Dreamer! Made during ZWT7.
  4. Very tasty. I used a tablespoon to scoop out the flesh from the avocado - worked out very well, and I didn't cut into the shell in any way. I didn't want to dirty a pan, so decided to forego sauteeing the onion and just added it raw (after rinsing, to make the onion flavour less pronounced). Enjoyed this very much for lunch today. Another way to serve quinoa, that is very tasty.
