For a while now, I’ve been toying with the idea of putting myself on a Gluten Free diet. No real reason really. Just want to see if I feel any different when eliminating gluten.

And here is a recipe that will be on the menu when (if ever) I decide to make that leap.

Red Quinoa with Avocado, Black Beans and Corn

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Cooking Time – 30 minutes


  • 1 cup red quinoa ($1)
  • 1 cup frozen diced green pepper ($.29)
  • 1 cup frozen corn ($.29)
  • 2 cups cooked black beans ($.40)
  • 1/4 cup lime juice ($.10)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped (free from the garden)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 avocado, diced ($1)


  • In a large skillet, saute the green pepper, corn and black beans.
  • Once softened, add the lime juice and cilantro.
  • In a saucepan, cook the red quinoa as directed on the package.
  • Once cooked, mix the quinoa in with the sauteing veggies.
  • Dice up an avocado.
  • Serve the avocado on top of the quinoa and veggies.

Cost $3.08

(I could have eaten 18 bowls. I really would have.)
