This recipe is so good! Can't wait to make it again...
If you have never cooked with quinoa- here is a little about it:
It is a grain/seed from South America that was used anciently. It is very high in protein (it's a complete protein), amino acids, and is gluten free. It can be substituted for most any grain. It is high in potassium & magnesium, so it's very good for the heart as well. It is a good source of calcium, too. Super good for you! It tastes great too. It's mild- similar to rice. Give it a try some time.
1/2 c. uncooked quinoa- cook according to directions
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1 c. corn
1.c diced tomatoes (or cherry tomatoes halved)
1/4 c. diced red onion (or green onion for milder flavor)
