I was in the mood for oatmeal this morning but wanted to use up stuff I already had in the fridge. So I decided to make this Maple Cinnamon Apple Quinoa Breakfast Bowl! It has a similar taste to oatmeal but uses quinoa as the base instead of oats.

One word can be used to describe this dish: FRESH! After the first bite, I'm sure that will be your first thought. The mix of avocado and fresh lemon in this creamy pasta dish creates the most amazing blend of flavors. This creamy avocado sauce was inspired by this recipe. This sauce can be used in many different dishes but I personally love it combined with shrimp.
