What's in My Lunchbox?

This week I am going to be packing this yummy quinoa dish that I found on Pinterest!

Here is what you'll need for this tweaked version:
1 cup quinoa (once it's cooked, it makes approximately 3 cups)
1 15 oz can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 jalapeƱo chopped
1/2-1 cup red onion chopped (you either love onions or not really, so add as much as you'd like)
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 lime
Salt to taste

Okay, quinoa is super easy to make....

Boil 2 cups of water, add 1 cup of quinoa along with some salt, simmer (covered) for 20 minutes, and done!

After the quinoa is done, I literally add the ingredients to the pot and stir it all up! The lime is squeezed to give it great flavor (and you can also zest the lime a bit too). 

I can't wait to eat this for lunch along with some baked tortilla chips!

If you have any questions, feel free to comment below. Have a wonderful week! :)
