Default Quinoa and Black Beans

This recipe is light and nice in the summer, hope you all like it

Quinoa and Black Beans

2 cups quinoa
3 1/2 cups water
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup chopped cilantro
5 green onions, sliced
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
1 small red bell pepper, diced small
2 cups cooked black beans

Dressing:
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt

Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh strainer under warm running water (must do this, it will be bitter otherwise). Place rinsed quinoa in a medium pot with the

water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and let simmer about 20 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove quinoa from the pot,

place in a large bowl, and let it cool. Combine olive oil, lime juice, cumin and sea salt in a small bowl. Whisk together and pour over cooled quinoa.

Toss well with a fork. Add cilantro, green onions, jalapeno pepper, red bell pepper and black beans and toss again. (I like to chill this in the fridge

and eat cold, also, I have been known to add extra cumin and jalapeno).

I hope you enjoy it! It is more of a side dish than a main course.
