This is by far the best quinoa dish I've eaten! I minced my onion in the food processor , used chicken stock and only used one can of black beans. So flavorful! Will make this often!

Great recipe. I used black quinoa for a little added flare.

Pretty delicious. Next time I'll use less beans or more Quinoa. Will experiment with mint and lemon as well. A favorite.

Didn't have any corn on hand but it still turned great. Will definitely make again.

It was great, I was scared about a can of black beans, but it was very tasty!

Wow! I'm so pleasantly surprised how tasty this recipe is. I'm a carnivore for life but really enjoyed the flavor in this strictly vegetarian dish. I also modified the recipe by adding 1/2 cup more Quinoa and used only 1 can of beans. I also used "Better Than Bouillon" vegetable base. Thanks for the recipe. Great job!!

I bought the Quinoa to try and wasn't to happy with it cooked plain like rice, but with this recipe, loved it. I ddn't have vegetable broth, so used chicken broth.

Both of us new to quinoa, my boyfriend requested that I make this. I was skeptical at first, but I snuck a spoonful before serving it for lunch and was REALLY surprised at how flavorful this recipe turned out! Will make again!

I used this recipe as burrito filler and topped with greek yogurt, salsa and lime juice. Really tasty.

Made this for a potluck event. People raved about it, served it chilled. Made the quinoa in my rice cooker. Will make again!

Made in my rice cooker. Had friends that tried this with me. We all really liked this.

This was so fresh and so light - a really great recipe. The pacing of it is also great - sometimes I don't do all my prep before I start, and then I'm frantically trying to chop or tear while the pot bubbles away, but this was a really easy, calm recipe. The nutritionals seem to be a bit wack - not that that's the poster's fault. This is a Weight Watchers recipe and is an 8 point meal- according to these nutritionals it would be 19 points a serving!
