  2. Quinoa & Black Bean Salad


    August 22, 2012 by Flora Dawn

    Quinoa is one of those “super foods” we are all supposed to be eating. However, I still struggle with incorporating it into our diets. We have found that quinoa salads are one of the easiest ways to eat quinoa, not to mention it’s a perfect meatless meal.

    I already have a wonderful Bacon Potato Salad posted, and you might be asking yourself how many potato salad recipes does one person need? I’ve asked myself the same question, and I have yet to come up with an answer.

    We eat a lot of corn tortillas at our house, which can get a bit boring. So the other night I decided to get creative and make something slightly different with my store bought tortillas.

    I sprayed some non-stick spray into various bowls and ramekins and inserted one softened tortilla into each dish. I sprayed again and baked until crisp. Instant, edible tortilla bowls.
