Quinoa Salad

Prepare quinoa according to package. (I use 2 cups chicken stock and 1 cup quinoa…once boiled, cover and simmer low for approx 15 min or until liquid is absorbed)

  • Add 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernals
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2-3 chopped red peppers
  • 1 teaspoonful cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1-2 T olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • fresh thyme and basil (optional)

Toss it all together and serve warm or room temp. Great way to get protein and veggies into a meal. Also great for BBQ’s and potlucks. Enjoy!
