::Quinoa Pasta with Avocado Dressing::
Quinoa pasta, not something I thought I would be into. In full transparency my body does not do well with normal quinoa so I was skeptical but willing to give it a try; especially with avocado dressing.🤣
There is an abundance of substitution possibilities. I added black beans for more fiber and protein. I also used Vegan yogurt instead of Greek yogurt.
The original recipe can be found here: Mind Over Munch.
