Ingredients

  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon instant vegetable stock powder
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 pound red potatoes, cut into ½" cubes
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup corn
  • ½ cup diced roasted red pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water and stock powder to a boil over high heat.
  2. Stir in the quinoa, potatoes, cumin and salt. Cover and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the corn and continue cooking, covered, until the quinoa and potatoes are tender and all the liquid is absorbed, about 12-15 minutes. If too dry, stir in a small amount of boiling water, cover and continue simmering.
  4. Season with additional salt if needed, and stir in the red pepper, cilantro and lemon juice. Serve and enjoy!
