Spicy Stuffed Avocados
The tough skin of avocado makes a perfect bowl to support a heaping serving of veggies on top of the creamy green flesh of the avocado itself. For a cheaper and faster alternative to the vegan “cream" described below, substitute plain, non-fat Greek yogurt.
1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 cup corn
1/2 red onion, minced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped and divided
1 Tbsp. salt-free Mexican seasoning
1 cup cashews, soaked in water overnight

1. Dry toast your cleaned quinoa for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Add vegetable broth and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 15-20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed.
2. Combine chopped vegetables, half of cilantro and the spice mix. When quinoa is cooked, add to vegetable mixture and cool.
3. Drain the cashews and place them in a food processor with 1/4 cup water, vinegar and salt. Puree, adding extra water in small increments as needed to get the desired texture. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the remaining cilantro and refrigerate.
4. Divide the slightly cooled vegetable mixture evenly across avocado halves. Serve with a dollop of the cashew cream and garnish with the remaining cilantro.
