Fresh Corn Quinoa combines corn kernels, chard basil, and mint with red quinoa for a quick and tasty side dish.

How to Make It

Bring quinoa, salt, and water to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until tender; drain. Cover and let stand 15 minutes. Meanwhile, sauté shallots in hot olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add corn kernels and shredded greens; cook 2 minutes or just until wilted. Add quinoa, basil, mint, and fresh lemon juice.

Tasty and different but not extraordinary. The sweetness of the corn is a nice counterpoint to the herbs. Good, fast, light and nutritious way to get your greens and whole grains.

This was my first time making quinoa. This was a nice and light recipe. My 15 year old daughter told me to keep this one on my "make it again" list. Thanks for a healthy easy recipe!

This was so good I made it for my family two nights in a row. Super easy and fast to make. I used turnip greens in the recipe instead of chard and canned corn instead of fresh.
