Black Bean Quinoa Salad

Since I was gifted cilantro by the wonderful Annie, I decided to search for some recipes that included cilantro, and I wound up finding this.
This post inspired me: click.

This is my version:

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 tbs garlic
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 can corn


1 can chopped tomatoes and chilies
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Cook quinoa.
  2. Sautee onion and pepper, add garlic.
  3. Stir in the quinoa, then pour in the chicken broth.
  4. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
  5. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from the heat and stir in the black beans, corn and cilantro.
  7. Serve warm or cold.
