Tyler’s Quinoa

This recipe was shared with my by a friend. It’s a great idea because quinoa is so healthy and it incorporates a bunch of veggies into it as well. You can throw almost any veggie into the pan, and it keeps in the fridge for over a week.


  • 1 cup quinoa (cooked according to package)
  • 1 chopped avocado
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 chopped small yellow zucchini
  • 1 chopped small green zucchini
  • 1 chopped bell pepper
  • ½ chopped red onion
  • ½ tbsp minced garlic
  • ½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp-1 tbsp crushed red pepper

Serves: 4

  1. Sauté zucchini with olive oil in a large skillet until softened (about 5 minutes).
  2. Add bell pepper, garlic and onion. Cook until softened (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add quinoa, salt, pepper and avocado. Mix until combined.
  4. Remove from heat and add shredded cheese and crushed red pepper (the more you add the spicier). Mix until melted. Enjoy!
    * You can also stuff this mixture into peppers and top with more shredded cheese. Throw it in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes and you have delicious stuffed peppers!
