Quinoa:
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin

Instructions:
  1. Combine quinoa, vegetable broth and water in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until quinoa softens and liquid evaporates — about 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Once quinoa has softened and liquid has evaporated, remove from heat, cool, and place in a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients.
  4. Serve quinoa mixture over romaine lettuce and drizzle with dressing.
