  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 30 min
  • Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa 250 mL
  • 2 navel oranges, divided
  • 3 tbs olive oil 45 mL
  • 3 tbs red wine vinegar 45 mL
  • 2 tsp honey 10 mL
  • 1 tsp salt 5 mL
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed 540 mL
  • 1 can corn, drained 341 mL
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 60 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Cook quinoa according to package directions.

  • Step 2

    Finely grate 1 tsp (5 mL) orange zest from 1 orange then squeeze out 1/3 cup (75 mL) juice. Set aside. Cut remaining orange into skinless segments (called supremes).

  • Step 3

    Mix orange juice with olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey and salt in large bowl. Stir in quinoa, black beans, corn, red pepper, onion, cilantro and reserved orange supremes until coated.

Tip

To cut a citrus fruit into supremes, cut a thin slice off both ends of fruit to allow it to stand on a flat end. Using a sharp knife, cut down vertically along sides to remove peel and pith in sections. Cut along either side of orange membranes to release the supremes.
