Roasted Pepper & Avocado Quinoa Salad

It seems this week is all about bulgur, couscous, quinoa and whatnot.
It’s definitely not on purpose.
It’s just I’ve been eating these super foods a lot lately. They give me so much energy and are so filling!

I can’t say which one is my favourite though!I love them all!
Prepared with delicious veggies and a nice dressing they are just irresistible!

The other night I made quinoa salad with roasted peppers and avocado.
I was thinking to make more for the following day, and I did.
But nothing was left.:-)
It’s so amazing how these simple foods with a combination of just 2-3 other ingredients can be so tasty!

Here are the ingredients for my quinoa & roasted peppers salad.
