Time for a recipe that you can eat as a side dish or as the main meal. As mentioned in the last post – quinoa is a complete protein. All the amino acids (what protein is made of) that your body needs are found in quinoa. Cool!
This recipe is full of flavor! To make this recipe you’ll need: rinsed quinoa, salsa, black beans, corn, cumin and water.
To get started, combine corn and black beans in a pan and place over medium heat. Once the corn is tender, add the quinoa and cumin. Stir constantly for about 3 minutes. Next, add the salsa and water – mix together.
Cover the pan and leave for about 15 minutes or until the quinoa has absorbed the water. If the quinoa isn’t all the way cooked once the initial water has been absorbed, add more water and let it cook for a few more minutes. Quinoa should be soft and fluffy.
The finished product will surely bring a smile to your face!
