#WeAteWhat Summer Quinoa Bowl

We decided to shake things up by combining food with fashion! Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat challenged us to create a quinoa salad using some of her favorite ingredients (ie. avocado - anyone shocked!?) The summer salad we concocted is SUPER simple and refreshing. We recommend making a batch in the beginning of the week to have for meals or snacks throughout the week. Use the recipe below or watch us cooking together here!


quinoa salad recipe
  • 1 cup quinoa (any color)
  • 1 cup peas (fresh or frozen) 
  • 1/3 cup mushrooms, diced 
  • 1 cup orange slices, thick 
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled 
  • 2 tbsp yellow onions, diced 
  • 1/2 avocado, diced 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • optional: 1 grilled chicken breast 


  1. Boil quinoa on one burner. Remember, 1 part quinoa, 2 parts water. Bring quinoa & water to rolling boil, then turn flame to medium/low and cover pot until water evaporates. 
  2. On a separate burner saute onions and mushrooms in olive oil until onions turn golden brown. 
  3. Once quinoa is cooked, place in separate bowl and allow to cool.
  4. Add peas, mushrooms, onions, orange slices, avocado, and feta cheese to quinoa. Mix together until ingredients appear evenly distributed. Enjoy!
