Look for red and white or tricolor quinoa blends for an extra pop of color in this fast side (there's no difference in flavor). Combine leftover quinoa with some canned black beans and diced avocado for a protein-packed addition to lunchtime wraps or salads.

How to Make It

Bring 3/4 cup water and quinoa to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 12 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Stir in chopped shallots and the remaining ingredients.
