Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is a nutty grain found in most health stores and trader joes. It's a nice alternative to rice or couscous. I was happily surprised that my 1 yr. old loved this salad as much as I do!

1 c. Quinoa
2 c. veggie broth
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 bell pepper (red, yellow or orange), diced
1 large tomato, diced
1/2 bunch cilantro, minced
2 t. cumin
salt and pepper to taste
lots of lime juice (from about 6 limes)

Cook quinoa according to package directions, using broth instead of water. Combine cooled quinoa with the rest of the ingredients and serve!
