⅓ cup red quinoa, rinsed well
3 Tbsp 2% Greek yogurt
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped, plus leaves for garnish
3 Tbsp drained and rinsed canned black beans
3 Tbsp salsa
¼ small avocado, sliced
2 radishes, cut into thin matchsticks
1 Tbsp pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1. Bring 1 cup water, the quinoa and a pinch of salt to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and let sit, covered, for at least 5 minutes (the dish can be served warm or at room temperature).
2. Whisk together the yogurt, lime juice, cilantro and a pinch of salt in a small bowl.
3. Put the cooked quinoa in a cereal bowl, and top with the yogurt mixture, beans, salsa, avocados, radishes and pepitas in neat piles or rows. Garnish with cilantro. Then take a photo!
