While quinoa is cooking, make your pico de gallo – In a medium bowl, gently stir together tomatoes, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, salt, pepper, and garlic. To assemble your bowls, divide quinoa into 4 portions. Serve with about 1/2 cup of the pico de gallo, and about 1/2 cup black beans, and 1/4-1/2 an avocado, diced or sliced.
