Have you bounced on the quinoa train yet? This plate of mixed greens could very well be your ticket to move on board and love the ride. It is so completely basic and heavenly, also refreshingly light and solid. The generous dark beans, sweet corn and crisp cilantro compliment the sensitive idea of the quinoa impeccably.

It is high in protein, iron, potassium and different nutrients and minerals and is a decent source of fiber. There's a great deal to adore about quinoa, I'm letting you know!

Medical advantages aside, these little delicate pieces concoct to be fleecy and light yet at the same time hold a nibble to their surface. This was one of my first attacks into quinoa and I realize I'll be utilizing it again and again dependent on the accomplishment of this plate of mixed greens.

Black Bean and Sweet Corn Quinoa Salad #vegan #salad

This dark bean and sweet corn quinoa plate of mixed greens is straightforward and tasty, also a refreshingly light and solid side dish.


  •  1 tablespoon olive oil
  •  1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  •  2 cloves garlic, minced
  •  3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  •  1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  •  1 teaspoon ground cumin
  •  1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  •  1 cup frozen sweet white corn
  •  2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  •  1/2 cup cilantro, chopped


  1. In a medium pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When shimmering and hot, add the onions and saute for 4-5 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic and stir for a minute or two until the garlic is fragrant, being careful not to burn the garlic.
  2. Add the quinoa and cover with broth. Stir in cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes (or until all the liquid is absorbed).
  3. Stir in the frozen corn and black beans. Cover and let the pot sit off the heat until the corn and beans are heated through, about 5-6 minutes. Stir in the cilantro. Serve warm or chilled – it is delicious both ways!
