Quick and Easy Lunch Recipe

AVOCADO, QUINOA &  CHICK PEA SALAD

This recipe is a great lunch staple of mine.  One tip is to make double the batch and keep the grain in the fridge for a couple of days so you can enjoy it over a few days. Feel free to add in any testy bits you have in the fridge, I love adding in loads of crumbled feta or some slices of radish or cucumber.
