Quinoa Avocado Salad Plating Hack


If your new year's resolution is to make food look more beautiful -- or if you are trying to impress someone with an elegant meal, you will appreciate this trick to plate quinoa avocado salad. You will need a round cookie cutter or "ring mold" and some spoons. Here are the simple steps:

  • Place the cookie cutter on a plate
  • Spoon the quinoa 3/4 of the way to the top
  • Add smashed avocado on top of the quinoa
  • Pat and smooth with a fork
  • Lift the cookie cutter just before presentation

You can use this plating hack for any loose foods that are a little sticky: mashed potatoes, puréed butternut squash, (thick) risotto. If the food sticks to the sides of the cookie cutter, try spraying the cookie cutter with oil beforehand.
