  • 1/3 cup(s) Quinoa
  • 1 cup(s) Water

  • 4 teaspoon(s) Fresh lime juice, or more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) Ground coriander

  1. Rinse quinoa well in a sieve under cool running water. In a saucepan, bring the water to a boil, add the quinoa, cover, and simmer on low heat, until all of the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the oil, lime juice, cumin, coriander, cilantro, and scallions. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, and chiles. Add the cooled quinoa and salt and pepper to taste, and combine thoroughly. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with lemon or lime wedges.
