If you have already made it through the list of New Year’s Recipe for Good Health and are looking for more low-fat entrees or side dishes for Meatless Monday or any other busy weeknight, this is the recipe for you. This dish can be made with either the regular (light tan-colored) or red quinoa. It is packed with healthy protein, fiber, and fresh vegetables, and tossed with a tangy lime-cumin dressing. I wish I could claim this recipe as my own, but it came from the kitchen of talented blogger Kay Heritage, otherwise known as The Church Cook.
Head over to The Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen blog for more information on quinoa, step-by-step photos and the recipe.
