Mexican Quinoa

 

I love it when I come across a recipe that is not only delicious, healthy and easy but its also made in one pot in 30 minutes!

Mexican Quinoa

  • 1 tbsps Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 jalapeño (minced)
  • 1 cup quinoa  (rinsed well & drained)
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 can black beans  (rinsed & drained)
  • 1 large can diced tomatoes (can use fresh peeled & diced)
  • 1 can kernel corn
  • 2 tsps chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1-2 avocados (diced)
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • Chopped cilantro or green onion to garnish
  1. Heat oil over medium heat.  Add garlic and jalapeño and cook for 1 minute stirring frequently.
  2. Stir in quinoa, broth, black beans, tomatoes, corn, chilli powder, cumin, salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer until quinoa is cooked, approximately 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in avocado and lime juice.
  5. Garnish with cilantro or green onion.

I can think of so many ways this recipe can be changed to suit your needs and leftovers can be stuffed into green peppers or squash, or try adding shredded cheese.
