Quinoa Burrito Bowl

Presenting the low-calorie Quinoa Burrito Bowl recipe. Let’s get started.

For this wholesome dish, you’ll need:

  • One cup quinoa
  • One and three-quarters cups water
  • A quarter teaspoon salt
  • One can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • One cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen
  • One cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Half a red onion, finely chopped
  • One bell pepper, diced
  • A quarter cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of one lime
  • Half a teaspoon ground cumin
  • Half a teaspoon chili powder
  • A quarter teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: avocado, Greek yogurt, salsa

Start by rinsing the quinoa thoroughly under cold water.

In a pot, combine quinoa, water, and a quarter teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the water is absorbed.

While the quinoa cooks, prepare the black beans, corn, cherry tomatoes, red onion, bell pepper, and cilantro.

In a bowl, whisk together lime juice, ground cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to make a zesty dressing.

Once the quinoa is ready, fluff it with a fork and let it cool slightly.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, black beans, corn, cherry tomatoes, red onion, bell pepper, and cilantro.

Pour the zesty dressing over the mixture and toss everything together until well combined.

Your low-calorie Quinoa Burrito Bowl is now ready to be enjoyed!

Serve it up as is, or top it with some creamy avocado, a dollop of Greek yogurt, or a spoonful of salsa for extra flavor.
