Healthy and Quick Black Bean Quinoa Salad Recipe 2010-01-13 16:30:49

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
    salt
    3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1 chipotle in adobo, minced
    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 (15 ounce) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
    6 scallions, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
    1 small red onion, finely diced
    1 yellow bell pepper, finely diced
    1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa with 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Cover the saucepan and simmer the quinoa over low heat until the water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Spread the quinoa on a plate and let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice and chipotle. Add the olive oil in a thin stream, whisking until blended. Add the black beans, quinoa, scallions, red onion, yellow pepper and cilantro. Season with salt, toss to combine and serve.

Serves 8.

Make Ahead: the black bean–and–quinoa salad can be refrigerated overnight.
