More Quinoa Please…
Posted August 5, 2011on:
Tonight’s recipe is a new one for us. We haven’t tried it, but it looks DELICIOUS! I found the recipe on $5 Dinners, which happens to be an awesome site. You should check it out. I’ve got the recipe below, and I will let you know how it rates, and add a picture, after we chow down tonight.
1 cup red quinoa (I have white quinoa left over from the other night, so I won’t be using the red.)
1 cup frozen diced green pepper (I used fresh)
1 cup frozen corn
2 cups cooked black beans
1/4 cup lime juice
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1 avocado, diced
In a large skillet, saute the green pepper, corn and black beans. Once softened, add the lime juice and cilantro. In saucepan, cook the red quinoa as directed on the package. Once cooked, mix the quinoa in with the sauteeing veggies. Dice up and avocado. Serve the avocado on top of the quinoa and veggies.
How was it?
This recipe was yummy. I don’t think I’ve mastered how to cook the quinoa yet, because it was a little mushy, and kind of fell apart. I think I could have taken it off the stove a few minutes earlier. Otherwise, the flavors were really good. We would totally eat it again.
