A very tasty vegetarian meal. My husband and I always get asked for the recipe when we bring the leftovers into work the next day.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes with chilies (Ro-Tel), drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • salsa (optional)
  • sour cream (optional)
  • pepper-jack cheese, shredded (optional)

Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes.

Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer for about 5 minutes, or until heated through. Mix in the black beans, tomatoes, and cilantro.

If desired, top with salsa, sour cream, and/or shredded cheese. Great served with tortilla chips or rolled in a tortilla.
