Truly the best quinoa salad I’ve tasted. And that’s not just because I made it 🙂
I ate this for dinner the other night after a good workout at the gym and was very satisfied. Great topped with a sliced avocado.
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 can of black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 tomato chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 white onion chopped
1/2 jalapeno chopped
salt and pepper
Cook quinoa according to package (usually with one cup of water for about 15 min.). In a medium saucepan, sautee olive oil, garlic, and onions for about 5 min. Add black beans, jalapeno, salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook on low for a few minutes. Add tomato, juice of half a lemon, and quinoa. Sautee for 2 minutes until all of the flavors have marinated.
It’s that easy. Enjoy!
For a quicker version, just add salsa, black beans, and quinoa heated together.
