Quinoa is a healthy alternative to other types of whole grains. When paired
with high-fiber black beans, quinoa is a great backdrop for a healthy and unique salad. Serve this salad as a side dish, or pair it with crusty, whole-grain bread for
a light meal.
1 cup red or regular dry quinoa
2 cups water
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
2/3 cup salsa
2 green onions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons (tbs) cilantro, chopped
2 tbs grated soy cheese
Add quinoa to 2 cups water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until all the water is absorbed (about 10–15 minutes).
Place the cooked quinoa in a medium-sized bowl. Add the salsa and black beans, and gently mix until combined. Place in serving bowls. Garnish with green onions, cilantro and soy cheese. Makes four servings (about 1 cup per serving).
