This vegan quinoa recipe has great flavor and is a perfect lunch or side dish for you to try with dinner tonight.
I didn’t grow up eating quinoa, but starting a vegan journey will open your world up to a lot of amazing seeds, grains, vegetables, and fruit.
I promise there’s so much variety! Be open to experimenting and having some fun in the kitchen.
You can find quinoa in most grocery stores these days. It’s usually in the same aisle as rice.
Remember to rinse your quinoa before cooking to remove the bitter saponin coating.
Here’s the full recipe:
Ingredients: (Serves 6 as a side dish)
*1 cup quinoa, rinsed
*2 cups water or vegetable broth
*15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
*1 cup corn, frozen or fresh
*3/4 cup red onion, chopped
*2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
*2 avocados, pitted and diced
*Juice of 1 lime
*1 teaspoon cumin
*1 teaspoon chili powder
*1/4 teaspoon cayenne
*1 teaspoon salt
*1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
Combine quinoa and water in a small pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat (to low), cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed.
Use a fork to fluff your quinoa, then transfer to a large bowl.
Mix in cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and salt.
Allow quinoa to cool, then add in all the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
Adjust seasoning to taste (I usually add in all the spices again to make sure the vegetables are flavor-able).
Cover and chill in the fridge or eat it at room temperature.
Consume this dish within 3 days.
