Quinoa Black Bean Salad:
1 cup cooked Quinoa
1 15 oz can Garbanzo Beans drained and rinsed
1 15 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
1 8 oz can sweet corn drained and rinsed
1 8 oz can diced green chilis
1/3 cup roasted red peppers chopped
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic herb seasoning
In a sauce pan on a high heat bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add 1 cup of quinoa. Cover and reduce heat to low for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let it sit for another 5 minutes. Remove lid and fluff with a fork. You can make this a few days in advance and leave in your fridge.
Putting your salad together:
Combine all the ingredients above in a large mixing bowl and stir. Add salt and pepper to your taste. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to three days.
You can add cooked chicken to make a full meal out of this also.
