Cilantro Lime Quinoa



  • 1 cup of uncooked quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1/41/2 cup cilantro, chopped (depending on your likeness to cilantro)
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • optional: green onion for serving


  1. Cook quinoa according to directions.
  2. Using minimal oil (I use olive oil spray), saute your onion until it begins to turn transparent, about 7-10 minutes.
  3. Once quinoa is cooked and the onion is sauteed, combine the quinoa, onion, cilantro, and lime juice in one big bowl. Stir.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Enjoy!!!


This recipe makes enough for 2 rather large servings (perfect if you’re eating it as a meal) or 4 moderate side servings.
