Yield: Serves 6-8
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups water
- Four poblano peppers, roasted, peeled, and diced
- One teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 3/4 cup cooked black beans, rinsed
- 1 cup feta, crumbled (I like sheep’s milk feta)
- 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
- 2 cups baby kale, lightly packed
- 1/4 cup cumin lime dressing
- In a dry pan with a lid, toast the quinoa for about 5 minutes on average temperature. It will become golden brown and odor like freshly popped popcorn. Put the water and salt to the pan and increase the heat to high as it begins to boil — this will only take a minute or 2 since your pan was already pretty darn hot. Turn down to a low boil, cover for 15 minutes (set your timer!!).
- After 15 minutes take it away from heat and plump up the cooked quinoa with a fork. Most of the liquid should be engrossed. Put the lid back on the pan and leave for 5 minutes. If you leave the quinoa for more than 5 minutes it will become soggy, so spread the cooked quinoa on a cookie sheet lined with parchment to cool.
- To bring together the salad, toss all ingredients — quinoa, peppers, black beans, cilantro, feta, and kale — in a big serving bowl. Tenderly fold in dressing and add more as desirable to taste. Serve!
