Quinoa and Avocado Salad

Total time: 20 minutes
     Quinoa is very high in protein and "contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete food" according to Wikipedia.  The avocado adds a creamy, luscious, element to the quinoa, (even if the color was a little strange).  You can substitute Basmati or Jasmine rice.
