Quinoa with Onion, Sun-dried Tomatoes and Corn

September 26, 2017

 

 

Quinoa is a buzz word in the healthy recipe world and it deserves it's reputation. It's one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat and contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains and is filled with vitamins and minerals! 

 

There is no limit to what you can do with quinoa. This weekend, I just used what I had in my fridge and this was my favorite quinoa experiment ever! This will forever be one of my coveted quinoa recipes! 

 

Ingredients:

*Adjust the ingredients to your liking. You can't make a mistake!

1 cup uncooked quinoa prepared according to package directions

Chicken broth (to boil quinoa in) according to package amount

2 ears corn kernels 

1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup onion, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Instructions:

 

1. prepare quinoa according to package directions, but use chicken broth for more flavor.

2. Add chopped sun-dried tomatoes to water so that it softens while quinoa cooks.

3. Boil corn a few minutes until bright yellow and cut off corn kernels after cooled (or use frozen or canned)

4. Saute onion in olive oil, salt and pepper until soft and fragrant. (add any herbs you wish) I love Herbs de Provence!

5. Mix cooked quinoa and sun-dried tomatoes with corn and onion

7. Enjoy

 

You can also use it the next day with a little egg and avocado on top! Yum!
