  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt

Quinoa Ingredients:

  • 1 cup quinoa rinsed 
  • 2 cups water or broth (I used bone broth)

Honey Lime Dressing:

  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp honey

  • 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 

Raw additions:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss veggies with spices and olive oil and roast for 20-30 minutes or until soft. Be sure to toss them from time to time. Meanwhile, rinse your quinoa and add to a pot with 2 cups broth or water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes, until all liquid has been absorbed. Prepare your greens and cut avocado into small pieces. 

In a small mixing bowl mix lime juice, honey, cumin and salt and set aside. Add avocado, and drizzle with dressing, and top with seeds and nuts. 

To assemble, create a bed of greens, place quinoa on top, add your veggies, avocado and drizzle with dressing. Top with seeds and nuts.
