  • 30 oz. black beans, canned, organic
  • 1 lbs. peas, baby, frozen, organic
  • 4 green onion, fresh, organic
  • 1/3 c. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic

Rinse quinoa well and add to 3 cups of boiling water. Cook covered for 20 minutes. Lightly steam baby peas by adding them to quinoa pot during the last 3 mins of cooking. Let both cool. Combine oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and salt in a bowl. Add quinoa, beans, peas, onions (sliced), parsley (chopped), and cilantro (chopped). Toss gently to blend. Makes 8 one-cup servings.
