Southwest Quinoa Bowl with Cilantro Dressing is a hearty healthy grain bowl packed with amazing flavors! So easy to put together, and you will love the dressing!
Add quinoa, water, and salt to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
Take pan off of heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
Remove lid and fluff quinoa with a fork. Quinoa is done when it looks translucent and you can see the germ (the little sprout).
Set aside to cool.
Add dressing ingredients to a mini food processor and pulse several times, until ingredients are well chopped and blended.
When Quinoa has cooled (you can serve it warm, but I don’t recommend hot), transfer to a bowl.
Mash the avocado with the salt and lime juice. Place in bowl with quinoa.
Add the corn, onion, black beans, and roasted red pepper to the bowl.
Drizzle with the cilantro dressing and garnish as desired.
