Purple lentil quinoa

Hello everyone. This time I have an interesting recipe for you, which actually came out of my partner's head :)  The recipe is very easy and can be varied. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did:)
Yields to 3-4 servings.

What will you need: 
- 300 g quinoa
- 750 ml water for quinoa
- 2 tbsp mom's vegetable broth
- 1/2 head of a red cabbage
- 5 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1 cup of brown lentils, soaked overnight
- 2 tbsp white almond cream
- 50 ml water
- salt and pepper

Method:
  1. Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package. I like to add 2 tbsp of my mom's vegetable broth, which makes the quinoa tasting even better :)
  2. At the same time rinse the lentils and cook them in a separate pot according to the instructions on the package.
  3. Next, add the cabbage into a pan which is filled with water up to about half a centimeter. Cook the cabbage on medium heat with a closed lid, until the water is gone. 
  4. Meanwhile, in a separate mixing bowl mix almond cream with water, salt and pepper. Pour it over the cabbage mix. Turn off the heat.  
  5. Add the cut avocados to the cabbage. 
  6. In a separate pan toast the sunflower seeds on a little oil until they become golden brown. Add a little salt on top. Pour it over the cabbage mix.
  7. Serve the cabbage mix on the top of the quinoa, or mix everything together. 
Enjoy :)
