This recipe is for you Mom!
*Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture so you'll just have to imagine the yummy salad*
Just to tease you, here's a picture of my mom's 14 Karat Cake which is ONLY available in my cookbook
Mary's Real Food Cookbook . My mom sent me on the plane with a giant piece of cake!
Easy Quinoa Salad
2 cups dry quinoa
4 cups water
1 tablespoon butter (or olive oil)
1 can black beans (15-16 oz)
1 can whole kernel corn (small or large)
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
1/2 white onion (or red), finely chopped
cherry tomatoes, halved
1 lime, juiced
salt and pepper
Start by cooking your quinoa. Boil water, add quinoa and butter/oil then simmer until fully cooked. Should take about 20-25 minutes. Let cool.
While your quinoa is cooking prep the remaining ingredients and place in a large bowl. Drain the beans and the corn before placing in your bowl. Place the bowl with your ingredients into the refrigerator until your quinoa is cooled.
Add cooled quinoa and mix thoroughly. Serve cool or cold!
There are several optional additions for this salad: sliced black olives, feta cheese, chopped jalapeno.
