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 Green Giant® frozen vegetables.
cup uncooked quinoa
box (9 oz) Green Giant™ Simply Steam® frozen baby lima beans
box (10 oz) Green Giant™ Niblets® frozen corn & butter sauce
medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeded, chopped
Sliced green onions, if desired
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.
Meanwhile, cook lima beans as directed on box; drain. Cook corn as directed on box. Pour drained lima beans and corn & butter sauce into 10-inch skillet. Add paprika, salt and pepper; mix well. Stir in cooked quinoa and tomato.
Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with green onions.
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.
