Yum... Shayne said, "It's good, but it's not like I'm going to request this one." Well, that's all good and all until we saw how much Corynn tore-it-up. And if that stubborn girl likes it... we'll be having it again! It was real good the next day for lunch, wrapped up in a whole grain tortilla with avocado and tomatoes. Thanks Jami!
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup frozen corn kernels (or one can corn)
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
Juice of one lime
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
garnish with avocado or sour cream
First start by soaking quinoa in water. Before you add it to your sauce pan rinse very well and drain.
Heat some water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Steam-fry the onion and garlic, and saute until lightly browned.
Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Add canned tomatoes (drained). Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes.
Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Mix in the black beans and cilantro and lime juice.
