Quinoa has been called a superfood and it’s one of my favorites! It is a complete protein and is also a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, and iron. For those of you that are gluten-free, you know that you can enjoy this gluten-free “grain.” This recipe can easily be a gluten-free recipe as long as you pay attention to the label of the canned beans and apple cider vinegar that you use.
The first time I had this particular recipe, my aunt had made it for us while we were visiting her in Florida. She wanted a side dish that the vegetarians could enjoy! I’m pretty sure everyone who ate it enjoyed it and it is evident at my house that this is a popular recipe. Use as a side dish or you can add it to a salad and top with salmon for a delicious dinner! I have already made two batches of this recipe at our house since I got my hands on her recipe and luckily I have cilantro in my garden that is ready so I don’t have to try to track this down at my local grocery store!
