  • Yield: 4 servings

Quinoa is gluten-free and has more protein than any other grain. It’s truly Supernatural and super delicious. There are so many ways to cook it.

Ingredients

1cup quinoa
2cups vegetable or chicken broth
1/2teaspoon sea salt
1cup cooked corn kernels
1cup cooked black beans
3 green onions, sliced
Small bunch cilantro leaves, chopped
2tablespoons olive oil
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1/2teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups broth (or water) in a saucepan, add sea salt and bring to a full boil.  Reduce the heat to simmer, cover and cook until all the broth or water is absorbed, about 15- 20 minutes.  When done the grains will look almost clear.  Fluff with a fork and let stand until cool.
  2. Place the quinoa into a salad bowl, add the corn, black beans, sliced onions, cilantro, olive oil, lime zest and juice, cumin and salt and pepper to taste.
