Quinoa Medley with Beans & Corn
1 1/4 cups quinoa
1 15 oz. can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup fresh chunky salsa, divided (store-bought fresh salsa can be found in the produce aisle)- I also used more than 1/2 cup with this recipe! I'd say add as much as you like!
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 Tbs. olive oil
lime wedges, for garnish
1. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in saucepan. Stir in quinoa, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Simmer 10 minutes.
2. Add beans, corn, 1/4 cup salsa, and chili powder; season with salt & pepper. Return to a boil. Cover & cook 2-5 minutes or until quinoa is tender.
3. Stir in cilantro, oil, and remaining salsa. Serve with lime wedges.
