"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

2 cups cooked quinoa (1 cup dry quinoa yields about 2 cups cooked)
1/4 cup avocado oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin

Juice of one lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tomato chopped (about 1 cup)

Directions:
Rinse and cook the quinoa according to package directions. While the quinoa is cooking, whisk the oil, cumin, garlic, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes together in the bottom of a large bowl to let the flavors marry while you chop the veggies. Add the cooked quinoa and veggies to the bowl and gently fold it altogether with the dressing. Should let it chill in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes to let the flavors come together. Veggies should not be added too soon or they will turn soggy.
