Mexican Quinoa Salad Recipe

Mexican Quinoa Salad
1 cup cooked black beans
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup corn
2 tbsp cilantro chopped
3 sweet peppers chopped
Juice of 1 lime
1 tomato, chopped
1cup organic vegetable broth (or chicken)
1 cup quinoa
2 tbsp. McCormick Taco Seasoning
1 tbsp coconut oil
(Optional garnish with a little cheddar cheese and one avocado chopped.)

Throw it all in the pan and cook on medium low for 35 minutes.  (When ready to serve you can garnish with a little cheddar cheese and one avocado chopped.)
The kids and I loved this dish.  It was super easy to make and included items I always have in the kitchen.  The quinoa makes a great meat replacement with plenty of easy digestible protein for growth and development. 

For a light lunch the next day add it to a lettuce leaf for a quick Mexican Quinoa Wrap!  Delish.

Food should taste great and be helpful to your body!
