- 1 package of seitan
- 1 avocado
- 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced into quarters
- 1/4 red onion, chopped
- 5 sprigs of cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 cup fresh corn, lightly roasted (or the frozen roasted corn from TJs is great!)
- BBQ sauce
- 1 cup quinoa
- salt, pepper to taste
Combine quinoa with 1 1/2 cup of water in a small saucepan. Simmer on medium heat until water is absorbed.
Meanwhile, pat dry the seitan and pull apart to small pieces (about 1-2 inches). Lather with BBQ sauce and place in the oven on Hi Broil for about 10-15 minutes (you want to cook just a bit, but more importantly evaporate the water content).
In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, onion, cilantro, corn and avocado. Add the seitan and season with salt and pepper to taste. You can then either add the quinoa to the rest of the ingredients to make it as a salad, or serve the quinoa as a base and keep it separate. Either way its a delicious and fresh lunch or dinner!
