Home late, don't feel like cooking- mainly because the a/c is out in our kitchen, but we need to eat, I'm Starving! 

Here is a super simple complete protein, vegetarian dish you can whip up in less time it takes for you to find your take away menus and call in your dinner for delivery.

½-1 cup frozen sweet corn (fresh is always better, but who has the time tonight!)
1 red onion, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 red pepper, diced
1 can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
1 ½ cups quinoa (you can use rice if you prefer)
1 lime, juiced
handful of coriander (cilantro), chopped


  • Sauté the corn in 1-2 tbsp coconut oil on medium high heat and season with chili powder, cumin and coriander until it begins to brown, about 2-3 mins. 
  • Add the onion, garlic and red pepper and sauté another 2 mins. 
  • Add the black beans and toss to heat. (note- do not cook black beans, just toss them in the mixture and turn off heat.)
  • Remove from heat and add the cooked quinoa (or rice), lime juice and coriander and mix until all ingredients are combined.

This can be served warm or cold. I served mine with organic blue corn chips and avocado and it's my lunch again today.
