quinoa recipe:

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable/chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and saute until lightly browned. Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Stir corn and black beans into the saucepan until heated. Lastly, add cilantro.

so quick and easy! delicious too.
Also, reasonably cheap if you already have quinoa on hand. 

*note: i added grilled chicken, chili spice and lime juice to it tonight.
we topped it off with greek jalapeƱo yogurt. and scooped it up with 
multigrain tortilla chips.
