I put these elements together hoping for a good result and it turned out to
be delicious, and also very easy to prepare. I brought it to a potluck
dinner yesterday and it was very well received.
QUINOA WITH SALSA
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1-lb jar salsa (I used Muir Glen With Black Beans and Corn "medium")
10-ounce package of frozen corn kernels
1. Rinse the quinoa, put in a small saucepan with 2 cups water.
When it boils, stir it well, reduce heat to simmer, cook for
12 to 15 minutes until quinoa is translucent.
2. The hard part: open the jar of salsa. Add as much of it to
the quinoa as you like. I used about 3/4ths of the jar.
3. Put the frozen corn in a colander and briefly run hot water
over it to separate and slightly warm up the kernels.
Add to the quinoa and stir.
This was a great hot-weather dish which I served at room temperature.
The flavor is basically determined by the salsa that you use.
