Southwest Quinoa Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 ear of corn
  • 15 oz can of black beans
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 3 tbsp of cilantro, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 12 oz shrimp (optional)

Steps

  1. Chop garlic clove and add to medium sized bowl with rinsed quinoa. Add chicken broth, cover and microwave for 8 minutes, or until broth is completely absorbed. Bowl may be hot when done.
  2. In the meantime, dice the bell pepper. Cut the corn off the cob by placing the corn vertically on the center of a bundt pan, and cut downwards so the kernels fall into the pan.
  3. Add bell pepper, cooked quinoa and black beans.
  4. Use scissors to cut cilantro and green onions over the pan.
  5. Slice and juice the whole lime, then mix all the ingredients together.
  6. Optional: top with grilled shrimp.
