Avocado Quinoa Salad

(makes 4 servings)

1/2 cup quinoa (uncooked)
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1 avocado
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 large tomato, diced
1/4 cucumber, diced
1 stalk celery, diced

You may want to rinse the quinoa in a sieve before cooking to get rid of any bitter-tasting saponins.  In a medium saucepan, cook quinoa according to package directions, using brother in place of water.  Let cool.  Cut avocados in half, remove pit and peel.  Cut into chunks.  Toss with lemon juice.  Add avocado and all remaining ingredients to quinoa and toss gently to mix.  Add salt/pepper to taste.  Chill until ready to serve.
