Quinoa in Jar


Quinoa in Jar

Short on time?! Need some simple ideas for lunch or dinner that could be prepped and then popped in the fridge for a few days? I got you, friend, check this out?! Simple ingredients that actually taste amazing a few days after this dish was made. Yes, this quinoa still tastes amazing on day 3. Imagine that?! I encourage you to try this recipe and let me know what you think?! If you are dairy-free, replacing greek yogurt with any nut-based yogust would do the trick too. Just experiment with it and see what you like the best! ENJOY!


For the dressing:

  • 125g Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 8g fresh parsley
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

For the salad:

  • 370g cooked quinoa
  • 195g black beans
  • 170g corn
  • 120g spinach
  • 30g tomatoes, sliced
  • 200g avocados, diced


Place all of the ingredients for the salad dressing into a food processor and process until smooth. 

Add 3 tablespoons of salad dressing, to the mason jar base.

Then add the following ingredients - 1 cup spinach, 1/4 cup tomatoes, 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, 1/4 cup black beans, 1/4 cup corn and 1/2 avocado, diced.
