Avocado Veggie Quinoa (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Vegetarian)

I bought four avocados. I knew that I wanted to make my avocado pudding. I really enjoy bringing it to work, and my husband does as well. I knew that the pudding only took two avocados.

Enjoying creamy dishes, I figured that I could come up with one involving avocados. It did so well in my pudding and many people put them into smoothies, so it should work.

Oh my… Work it did! My husband said quite a few times how delicious it was. Yes, a hit!!
I really enjoy putting a bunch of food items into a pot and coming out with a delicious healthy dish!
