  • 2 cups Quinoa, Dry
  • 2 cups Raw Shredded Carrots
  • 4 cups Raw Broccoli
  • 2 cups Purple Cabbage
  • 1 cup Onions
  • 1 tbsp Adobo All Purpose Seasoning
  • 2 tsp Spice, Garlic Powder
  • 1 dash Sea Salt, Coarse, Mediterranean
  • 1 dash Pepper, Black
  • 3 oz Frozen Peas
  • 2 tbsp Golden Flax Seed
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 dash Sriracha
  • 4 cups Water


1 In a large pot over medium-high heat, add water (or broth), quinoa, all of the fresh vegetables, adobo seasoning, garlic powder and salt and pepper.
2 Bring to a simmer, then turn the heat to low and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
3 Stir in frozen peas and simmer for another few minutes.
4 Stir in the flaxseed and taste, then add more salt and pepper if needed.
5 Divide evenly between the bowls and garnish with fresh avocado slices, a drizzle of sriracha and a sprig of parsley.
6 Variations: Add some greens in the step where you add the peas; try kale, spinach, Swiss chard or arugula. You could also top the bowl with a piece of grilled chicken or fish!
