    Actually just found one myself in allrecipes so may give this one a try as it has good reviews.
    I remember my consultant saying something about corn and trying to avoid it so may leave that out.

    Original Recipe Yield 10 servings


    Ingredients

    • 5 ml vegetable oil
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
    • 130 g uncooked quinoa
    • 355 ml vegetable broth or Chicken broth
    • 2 g ground cumin
    • 0.4 g cayenne pepper
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 165 g frozen corn kernels
    • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
    • 25 g chopped fresh cilantro

    Directions

    1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and saute until lightly browned.
    2. Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes,
    3. Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Mix in the black beans and cilantro.
