Quinoa and Bean Salad: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 20 min.
Total: 30 min.
This main dish salad features quinoa, an ancient Inca grain. High-protein quinoa cooks in 15 minutes, so it's great for fast meals.

Ingredients

  • Quinoa salad:1 cup quinoa, well rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 to 3 scallions, minced
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Bean salad:1 16-ounce (455g) can pinto beans, drained
  • 1 cup diced tomato
  • 1 Tbs apple cider
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley or cilantro
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Garnishes: Pumpkin seeds
  • Black olives
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips

Directions

  • Boil 2 cups water (480mL) in a saucepan. Add the quinoa and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. When done, fluff with a fork and transfer to a bowl. Combine quinoa with remaining ingredients for the quinoa salad.
  • While the quinoa cooks, toss the bean salad ingredients in another bowl.
  • To assemble, spread quinoa salad evenly on a platter. Leave a well in the center and mound bean salad into the well. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds. Arrange olives and pepper strips around the edge.
