  1. Prepare the quinoa
    One part uncooked quinoa will end up with three times as much cooked quinoa. Rinse the quinoa for at least 30 seconds to get rid of the bitterness. In a medium pot, add quinoa, water, garlic powder, chili flakes and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then decrease to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all the water, about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the amounts of quinoa. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for five minutes. Fluff the quinoa with a fork.
  2. Prepare the dressing
    Whisk together all sauce ingredients and adjust seasonings to taste. To thicken add more tahini, to thin add more water. Set aside, the flavors will develop over a few minutes.
  3. Build your bowl
    To serve divide between serving bowls: cooked quinoa, black beans and salad. Top with Pico de Gallo, tahini dressing, and avocado.
  4. How to store
    Store leftover separately, in the refrigerator, up to 5 days.
