Today is the first installment of my recipes using my Bob’s Red Mill Products. If you haven’t already go over and enter to win 3 products of your choice!

The first of my products that I experimented with was the quinoa.  It was the easiest to make part of a dinner out of it and I thought it would be something different to try.

I knew that I wanted to make some sort of Quinoa salad so I started browsing pinterest for ideas.

I came across a recipe I wanted to try, but decided to make a few changes of my own.

It seemed like an easy and perfect recipe to have for dinner so I went out and bought the ingredients to make it.

I did edit a few things in the recipe, but it turned out wonderfully!

Mexican Quinoa


Here is the recipe I created adapted from this Mexican Quinoa recipe.

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 1/4 cup vegetable broth
1 cup uncooked Quinoa
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. In large saucepan, heat olive oil to medium-high heat
2. Add garlic and saute until fragrant
3. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil
4. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes 

Oh, and you will have plenty of leftovers if you aren’t feeding a large family.
