07/04/2012: Happy 4th of July! - Here's one all natural vegetarian salad (Quinoa Black Bean Salad) that can be enjoyed on this freedom day!

Recipe: Saute Green Chillis (2 in number), Garlic (2 medium cloves chopped), chopped Red and Green Bell Pepper (1 each) in 1.5 tsps of Olive Oil until they are cooked. Add 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder and 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder. Stir once and transfer the contents to a large mixing bowl. To this add 1 can of Black Beans, Spring Onions / Scallions (1 small bunch chopped finely), 1 cup of Cooked Quinoa, 1 medium sized Tomato chopped finely, 1 medium size Cucumber chopped into bite sized pieces, a few sprigs of Cilantro chopped finely, Salt per your taste, Lemon Juice per your taste, Red Chilli Powder (if you feel the spiciness is low) and 1 tsp of Olive well. Mix well and serve immediately or chilled. Makes one yummy salad.
