COMBINE EVERYTHING: add the chicken, vegetables, avocado & dressing and MIX!

LAST STEP: Put the Egg on top of the dish!

And you’re all done. It seems complicated with everything going on, such as cooking the vegetables, chicken, and egg at the same time that the quinoa is cooking, but it really isn’t that difficult. You can substitute ingredients or add whatever you’d like, such as peppers, or take out the tomatoes. You can cook the chicken differently, and you can even split up the work. The first time I made this dish, I just made the quinoa, vegetables, and dressing because I had to rush to class. The next day, I cooked the chicken, boiled the egg, cut the avocado, and made more dressing, to add to the already made quinoa and veggies from the day before. It still tasted fresh and delicious.

If you don’t eat eggs or chicken, of course just use the quinoa, veggies, avocado and dressing in your dish.

Enjoy!

With Love,
