To make it we tossed all of this together. But first we had to cook the quinoa, 1/2 cup in 1 cup of water. When it was boiling we turned it down to simmer for about ten minutes until all the water was absorbed. We let it cool down and then cut up and added a handful of colorful cherry tomatoes (from a local farm),1 avocado, a handful of parsley, a handful of lettuce (the recipe called for spinach), half a big red onion, the juice of 1 lemon, and sea salt and pepper to taste.
Lily gave it a good stir.
