  • 2 tbs. lemon juice

  • 2 c. white quinoa
  • 15 oz. canned kidney beans
  • 1 c. yellow bell pepper

Place basil in a food processor. Add lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and process until nearly smooth, stopping to scrape down side as needed. Set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together cooked quinoa, the beans, sweet pepper, tomato, and green onions. Add basil mixture; stir to coat. Makes 6 servings.
