Creamy Quinoa with Avocado

Nothing beats quinoa! It really is a wonderful little seed full of protein and fibre and then it’s gluten free. I use quinoa in a lot of different recipes and typically eat it either for breakfast, lunch or dinner. A nice, warm quinoa porridge in the morning is one of my favorites and quinoa salad in a thousand different variations is always a hit for dinner.

This time I have used the quinoa in a creamy avocado quinoa spread with coriander, which tastes amazing. I love the combination of avocado and quinoa and when you flavor it with coriander and some lime juice it’s just perfect. I actually always cook an extra large portion of quinoa, when I use it for a meal,  so I always have some leftovers for a portion of this creamy quinoa with avocado. As you can see in the pictures, I eat the creamy quinoa on some rye crisp bread. It’s really the best snack. So tasteful and so good for you!

    Great idea, to mash avocado and add it to Quinoa!! Great inspiration!! BTW, I’m a software developer by day and Superfoods nerd by night and guess what, my IT customers are in Danmark and Sweden. I travelled several times to Kopenhagen (Lynge is where my customer is) and I ate tons of great nordic foods. I don’t eat much gluten foods, but I couldn’t resist those rye sandwiches for lunch. I even tried pickled harring for breakfats and it’s awesome. I also ate great jam for breakfast made od some local berries and it was great. Great idea to spread the word about Nordic cuisine.

      Hi Don, thanks for the kind words! I’m glad to hear that you like the Danish food and the swedish for that matter. It has a great place in my heart so I’m always happy when I am able to share my Nordic food passion with others. Best, Julie
