    2 cups quinoa
    1 cup carrot - diced
    3-4 green onions
    3/4 cup diced red onion (more or less to taste)
    juice of 1-2 limes
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    .5 cup chopped cilantro
    salt to taste
    1 cup grated low-fat cheddar (optional - calories listed have cheese included)


Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add quinoa, lower heat, cover and cook until done (around 12-15 minutes). Remove from pot and place in large bowl - let cool.
Add remaining ingredients to cooled quinoa and mix well. Makes about 12 large servings. Good as a vegetarian main dish too.

To make quinoa burgers, add 2 eggs and a little whole wheat flour. Shape into patties and brown in olive oil. Great on a whole wheat roll with mustard and Tabasco! yum!
