Cilantro Lime Quinoa

Lately, I’ve really enjoyed adding Quinoa to meals. Here is what I whipped together last night that was totally delish, healthy and low calorie! Enjoy!

Cilantro Lime QuinoaIngredients:
1 Cup (uncooked) Quinoa
1 Medium Onion Chopped
2 Cloves Garlic
1 Can RoTel Cilantro & Lime Diced Tomatoes
1 Small Jalapeno
3/4 Cup Cilantro
1/2 Cup Scallions
1 Lime

Combine Quinoa with 2 cups water and bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Add all the other ingredients together and toss into Quinoa, finishing with 1 squeezed lime, then salt to taste. Serve hot. Extremely fresh tasting and yummy!!
