A meatless main dish or a tasty side to serve with your grilled meats, this lima bean, corn and quinoa combo is easy to make with frozen vegetables.

Ingredients

3/4
cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/2
cups water
1
box (9 oz) frozen baby lima beans
1
box (10 oz) frozen corn & butter sauce
1
teaspoon paprika
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4

Directions

  • 1 In fine strainer, rinse quinoa under cold water 1 minute; drain well. In 2-quart saucepan, heat quinoa and water to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes or until tender and liquid is absorbed.

  • 3 Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with green onions.

Expert Tips

Uncooked quinoa has a bitter coating and therefore must be rinsed and drained thoroughly before cooking.

Add some heat by stirring in 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce with the lima beans and corn.
