Recipe type: Quinoa Bowl
Serves: 1
  • ½ cup uncooked quinoa
  • ¼ cup red onion, diced
  • ½ cup frozen corn, thawed
  • ½ cup black beans
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 8-10 small shrimp, thawed (I used precooked, but you can season/cook raw shrimp, too)
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions. Let cool.
  2. While it's cooking, combine red onion, corn, black beans, and cilantro in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, combine shrimp with the garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Let marinate.
  4. In a third bowl make the dressing by combining the garlic, lemon juice, honey, olive oil, and Dijon mustard. Set aside.
  5. Heat skillet over medium heat and add shrimp. If using precooked shrimp, only heat for a minute or two. Be careful not to over cook. If using uncooked shrimp, then cook until pink.
  6. Add the quinoa and shrimp to the bowl with onion, beans, and corn. Pour dressing on top. Stir and serve.
