  2. Cook quinoa according to package directions. In the meantime, thinly slice two cups of fresh spinach. Once the quinoa has finished cooking, remove from heat and stir in the the spinach. The heat will wilt the spinach.
  3. Generously oil the grill (air grill works great) and place the quartered peaches on the grill. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side. Let cool to room temperature.
  4. Ball out about 1/2 teaspoon of goat cheese and form into small balls. Coat with toasted sunflower seeds. (If using raw sunflower seeds, toast ahead of time and let cool completely)
  5. Add quinoa spinach mix into a serving bowl and top with grilled peaches, sunflower coated goat cheese balls, toasted almond slices, julienned spinach and dress with pink peppercorn prosecco vinaigrette. Enjoy!
