P.S. For exact measurements read the printable recipe card below.

Ingredients:

  • Quinoa – prefer organic
  • Vegetable stock or water – I like to cook the quinoa with vegetable stock, which I keep ready almost all the time in my refrigerator but feel free to use water instead.
  • Medium ripe avocado – slightly ripened avocado is needed, avoid use hard avo’s.
  • Greek yogurt or Sour cream – both gives the same result so it’s your personal preference.
  • Fresh parsley – this is what brings the bright green color in this recipe, so you must find fresh and green parsley.
  • Fresh basil (optional)
  • Green Onions, green part only (optional)
  • Lemon, juiced
  • Honey – in case you do not like honey then skip it completely, or add maple syrup instead
  • Medium red onion
  • Cherry tomatoes – regular tomatoes will work fine in case cherry tomatoes are not available in your pantry, but cherry tomatoes looks so cute in this recipe.
  • Feta cheese – for my vegan friends, I have seen vegan feta cheese alternatives and you may use those to make this recipe vegan. The salty, crumbly, creamy, feta cheese adds a unique character in the recipe so make sure to add this.
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
