“Aunt Bee’s” Southwest Quinoa (Serve hot or cold.)

I am a huge fan of Quinoa for many reasons… It’s a nutritional powerhouse, full of protein, amino acids and Vitamin E.  Not to mention it tastes great and is a nice change from brown rice.
One of my Body N Balance members (Aunt Bee)  made this for me and I think it’s one of my FAVORITE Quinoa dishes!!  I personally like it served cold.

1 TB. olive oil
1/2 C. onion –chopped
3 cloves garlic–peeled & chopped
1 C. organic red quinoa, pre washed
1 Packet Knorr Vegetable Soup Mix
2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chipotle powder
2 C. water
1 (15 oz.) black beans –drained & rinsed
1 (10 oz.) box Green Giant shoe peg white corn (in light  butter sauce)
1/2 C. fresh cilantro–chopped

Saute onion &  garlic in oil over medium heat until soft.
Add soup mix, cumin, chipotle, quinoa & water: bring to a boil.
Cover pan & simmer for 15 min.
Add beans  & corn, stir & return to heat thru (5 min).
Remove from heat & stir in cilantro.
