Why is it super?
It is high in protein
It contains a balanced set of Amino Acids
It is high in Fiber
It is high in Iron
And its Gluten-free...so super easy to digest (great for runners like me!)
I have no idea why it took me so long to try this...it is absolutely delicious and really easy to prepare, sort of like rice.
I have made a couple different variations and this one was a crowd pleaser on the weekend. Enjoy!
Before you start, get some chicken broth boiling on your stove, you want it to be hot when you add it in. Follow the package directions for the amount of Liquid that you will need. For the brand I was using, I used 2 Cups Quinoa and 4 cups Chicken Broth.
Rinse 1 Can of Black Beans and 1 Can of Corn...set this aside as well.
Transfer to a casserole dish and garnish with sliced green onions
An excellent side dish or perfectly fine on its own!
