My son loves rice. I can get him to eat almost anything if I mix it into rice. Last summer, I was trying to find ways to increase his flavor preferences and I realized quinoa was a lot like rice in terms of texture and size. I came up with this fun quinoa recipe including other things he loved, like beans, cilantro, and lime. It was a huge hit! I was surprised at how much he ate… without complaint! And to this mom, that was a huge win.
This recipe pairs nicely with tacos or quesadillas and includes just enough freshness to help you not feel weighed down while you fill up.
