After doing my random scroll through all the foodie’s I”m following on Instagram I came across Cooking Light‘s little video take on a very tasty new dish. I new I had to make this today and I also realized how much I miss Cooking Light recipes. I did the recipe exactly with no substitutions and loved the way it came out. The red Quinoa, Black Beans, Red Bell pepper, Green Onions tossed in spinach and green mix with a very tasty dressing that I will be using for other recipes in the future. The steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned perfectly as well, I loved the bold flavors of the Chipotle Powder.
1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine 1 teaspoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, chipotle chile powder, and black pepper; rub evenly over steaks. Add steaks to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes. Cut steaks diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
2. Combine remaining 4 teaspoons oil, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, juice, and next 4 ingredients (through honey) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in quinoa, beans, bell pepper, cilantro, green onions, and spinach; toss to coat. Sprinkle with feta. Divide quinoa mixture evenly among 4 shallow bowls; top evenly with steak and avocado.
