Quinoa is a grain-like crop that produces seeds that are packed with amino acids. It has been a staple in South American countries such as Peru for thousands of years, but it has recently become popular here.
It’s extremely healthy and cooks like rice – very easy to make.
Quinoa is extremely versatile, but here’s one way to enjoy it:
Here’s what you need:
- black beans
- 2 chicken breasts
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
Cook the chicken breasts on medium in a skillet with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, lime, cumin, and diced onion (about 1/2 a small onion). Cook the quinoa as directed (same method as rice).
Heat the corn and black beans.
Chop cilantro, and half a tomato.
When the chicken is cooked through, cut it into bite-sized pieces.
When the quinoa is ready, add the corn, black beans, cilantro, chicken, and tomato. Sprinkle with a little cumin to taste, and a good dose of lime juice.
