While I have become more adventurous with quinoa, I still wanted to share the recipe that sparked my love of quinoa :) Enjoy!!!
Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa
2 tsp grated lime zest
2 Tbs fresh lime juice
1 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 tsp sugar
1 cup quinoa
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 medium tomatoes, diced (I've also used a large can of diced tomatoes, drained)
4 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh spinach (can also use cilantro)
Cook quinoa according to package instructions. After it's cooked, add rest of ingredients to quinoa. Serves 4, 7 points a serving.
*The orginial instructions had more steps but it's tastes the same by making it simple :)
