Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked quinoa
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 2 cups broccoli washed, broken in to small florets
  • 1 orange bell pepper washed, seeds and stalk rmoved, chopped into large chunky pieces
  • 1 large red onion skin removed, quartered
  • 1 avocado skin removed, stone removed, chop in to chunks just before adding (otherwise it will go brown)
