Quinoa Entrée With Mint Cilantro and Kauai LemonShop Kauai Farmers Markets for Fresh locally gown produce!

Serves 4

Bring one cup Quinoa in a 2 quart pot to a boil with one and ½ cups vegetable broth. Lower heat to Kauai Grown when a simmer and cover for 20 minutes. Don’t open the cover! Fluff gently with a fork, and add: (Kauai Produce when available)

½ cup torn mint leaves
½ juice of a Kauai lemon
1 14 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 14 ounce can sweet corn, drained
½ cup chopped cilantro or to taste
½ cup crumbled Feta

Make sure to mix in lightly with a fork in order to not press too much on the delicate grain.

Serve with braised Baby Bok  Choy:

In a large wok, add one Tablespoon canola or veggie oil and
heat to high temp.
Add 1 lb. baby bok choy, sliced lengthwise to ¼ width, and
toss to coat veg with oil. Toss and cook at very high heat for
one minute. This will give the bok choy a bit of smokiness
that is incredible.
Peel 2 cloves garlic and slice as thin as possible

Add ½ vegetable broth, garlic, and ¼ tsp each salt and
pepper or to taste.
Cover it and let it braise for 5­-8 minutes. If you like, after
about 3 minutes, add sliced zucchini or mushrooms and let
steam on the top of veggies. Keep covered for additional 4
minutes. So Ono!
