Black Bean, Corn & Edamame Quinoa Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
1/3 cup quinoa
Frozen corn, package
1 16- ounce can black beans
1 small package frozen shelled edamame
2 cups bell pepper, chopped
½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
Juice of 2 lemons
¼ cup liquid aminos
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Place 1/3 cup quinoa & 2/3 cup water into a small saucepan & bring to a boil, simmer and cook covered for about 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed.
Meanwhile, in a strainer, rinse and drain corn, black beans & edamame, just to wash away the liquid from the beans and start the thawing process on the corn & edamame. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
Add red pepper, cilantro, garlic & prepared quinoa.
To prepare the dressing, combine lemon juice, liquid aminos, Dijon mustard, and olive oil in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine ingredients then pour over vegetable & quinoa mixture.
