I have recently become obsessed with quinoa and have enjoyed making it a variety of ways these past few weeks. Salsa Quinoa was the VERY first way I prepared quinoa, and my oh my, it got me hooked! It's unbelievably easy to make and unbelievably nutritious & delicious. Perfect!
Source: an original Ice Cream & Wine recipe
1/2 cup dry quinoa
1 cup water
1/2 cup corn - I used frozen & heated it in the microwave
1/2 cup edamame
1/4-1/2 cup salsa
In a small saucepan, bring the quinoa and the water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the quinoa has absorbed the liquid (about 10-15 minutes). Stir in the corn, edamame & salsa. Cook until heated through - about 2-3 minutes. Season with chili powder to taste. Enjoy!
