Preparation

  • Slice the avocado into medium sized slices and the grape tomatoes into halves. Set them in a separate bowl aside with the chopped parsley.
  • Place the quinoa in a saucepan along with a tablespoon of olive oil and cook it on medium heat for about 12-15 minutes or until done.

  • Once the quinoa is done, place the finished quinoa in the saucepan onto the skillet.
  • Flash fry the quinoa and chouriço in the skillet on high heat for about 5 minutes until the chouriço has browned.
  • Once done place the chourico and quinoa into the bowl you placed aside with the tomatoes, avocado, and parsley and quickly toss them together in a bowl for serving.
