You’ll need:

  • 2 cups white quinoa
  • 3 Tbs whole golden flax seeds
  • 2 pints grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 ears raw sweet corn, kernels cut from the cob
  • 1 orange bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 jalapeno, diced very fine
  • juice of 3-4 limes
  • 1 large avocado, cut into slices or diced
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

In a pot over medium heat, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add quinoa and a dash of sea salt and cook covered until all the moisture is absorbed, about 15mins. Remove from heat and keep covered.

While your quinoa is cooking, dice your red onion and add to a large mixing bowl with lime juice and sea salt.  Keep adding your veggies (tomatoes, bell pepper, corn, cilantro, and jalapeno  to the bowl as you chop. Letting the veggies sit in the salt & lime juice allows them to marinate and absorb the flavor. Taste and adjust lime juice, salt, and pepper as needed according to taste. This combo is delicious on it’s own, on top of a salad, in a lettuce wrap, or as a lovely salsa!

Next, uncover your quinoa and sprinkle whole flax seeds on top. Use a wooden spoon to fluff the quinoa and mix in your flax seeds. Then add black beans and the veggie mixture. Gently fold all ingredients together. Taste and adjust lime juice, salt, and pepper as needed according to taste.
