Number of Servings: 7


    1 cup qunioa
    1/2 bell pepper (color is your choice)
    1 large carrot
    1/2 onion (red onion is better)
    3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed
    1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained
    3 tbsp sesame oil
    6 tbsp balsamic vinegar (more to taste)
    Pepper & Garlic powder to taste


Makes seven 1 cup servings.

Cook the quinoa according to the package/bulk bin directions. I bring two parts water to boil, add one part quinoa and simmer, covered, on med-low for 10 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.

While the qunioa is cooking, chop the carrot, onion, and bell pepper and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the beans and corn. When the quinoa has absorbed all the liquid, add it to the veggies in the bowl. Mix the sesame oil and balsamic together and stir into the salad. Add garlic powder, pepper, or more balsamic to taste. Mix WELL, and chill for 20 minutes. Serve.

While this is a "salad", it is very filling and sometimes I eat this and a piece of whole wheat toast for an entire meal.
