Quinoa & Avocado Vine Leaves

This is a simple recipe, but also very versatile. You can use any vegetable you like or have in your fridge. This type of food is great because it’s low in simple carbohydrates. Vine leaves can be bought in most supermarkets and are easy to work with, because of its thin but strong characteristics. A good substitute is cabbage or iceberg lettuce.
