  • 3/4 cup quinoa (about 5 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 limes, juice only
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • One 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 small red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa, water and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Let cool.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cumin, chili powder, lime juice and oil with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, add the black beans, bell pepper, cilantro and onions to the quinoa. Pour the dressing in. Mix well.
