1 c red and white quinoa mixed, rinsed
1 can vegetable broth (plus some water)
1 tbs lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
½ c. green bell pepper, finely diced
¼ c purple onion, finely diced
½ c black/red beans
1/3 c corn (I use frozen)
½ c dried cranberries
¼ c cilantro, diced
3 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tbs olive oil
1-2 tbs agave nectar (could MAYBE substitute with honey? Haven’t tried it…)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook quinoa in the vegetable broth/water combination on stovetop or in rice cooker at a 2-1 ratio (2 parts liquid to 1 part quinoa) WITH lime juice and garlic.
While it’s cooking, add everything else together in a bowl and mix. Add quinoa when it’s done and mix again. Trends suggest this be eaten cold, but I enjoy it warm as well- your call. Measurements are an estimate- add more or less according to your own taste. Serves as a bountiful side dish for maybe 8-10 people?
