Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup quinoa
  • Approx 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 1/2 red capsicum chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1/4 cup red kidney beans
  • 1/4 avocado chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp salsa
  • 1/4 cup cooked corn
  • NB – Measurements are all very approximate & can be altered according to how hungry you are & what you have in the fridge.

Directions

  1. Fry onion & capsicum in the olive oil in a non stick frypan or saucepan
  2. Add cumin & chilli, quinoa, about half a cup of water & stock
  3. Leave to cook for about 20-30 minutes until quinoa is cooked through – I never know how much water to use so keep an eye on it & add more water as needed
  4. Once it is all cooked add in the kidney beans, tomato & corn to heat through
  5. Place in bowl & top with salsa & avocado

Variation

    Instead of the chilli & cumin you can use a generic taco seasoning mix.  It is also nice with some baby spinach mixed through it after cooking
