Black Bean & Corn Quinoa
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
My rather picky mother said this was good, but I did modify. Added 2 t garlic minced, 3 zucchini/yellow squash quartered and sliced, 1/3 c onion diced, another bell pepper diced, shredded cheese for topping. Added the garlic to the vegetable saute. Prepped the zucch and extra onion and sauteed separately to keep it from getting mushy while quinoa cooked. Added zucch mix and raw bell pepper to quinoa mix after taking off heat. Cheese on top as desired.
Good base of a recipe, but needed modifications to make it tastier. - extra chili powder - fresh cloves of garlic (2-3) garlic powder - red pepper flakes Added in the remainder of a jar of smokey chipotle salsa when finished cooking. Served with cheese -- YUM
This is a delicious recipe and I did make a few changes after reading the reviews of others. I cooked all the veggies separate with the exception of the frozen corn I added to the red quinoa the last 5 minutes. Ingredient and other Changes Used vegetable oil Added 1 tbsp lime juice Cumin instead of chili powder Salt added 1/2 teaspoon and no pepper Italian parsley instead of cilantro Added approximately 12 cut up cooked baby carrots (cooked in microwave 1st) After everything was mixed together added 2 tbsp of butter
Delicious! I bought the multi color quinoa and I used 1 cup water and 1 cup chicken stock, added some lime juice. Very good as a cold salad also.
Delicious and nutritious! We always skip the added salt and pepper. My husband thinks it needs meat; everyone else thought it was perfect!
Very tasty. Used chicken stock, as I had no vegetable stock. I think next time I might add a little cumin, and also some garlic. I would definitely not cook the vegetables with the quinoa, as the peppers and celery turn too soft for my taste. Prefer to have more variety in textures. Definitely will make this again, but will make some tweaks to add additional flavor, and just a little more heat.
My vegetarian daughter loved it and I enjoyed it as well. She wants me to put more chili powder in it next time which I will. I added steamed broccoli on top of the servings for vegetables.
This was super easy to make and had a great taste.I used olive oil instead. I used green pepper instead of celery, and i added 3 small cloves of garlic. I also used chicken stock.
Delicious hot! And the cold leftovers were delicious as well.
