    You can add low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed and also sweet corn kernels and low-fat feta cheese, it adds flavor to your Quinoa Salad

    My daughter is on a gluten/ dairy free diet so we will be eating more if this. Glad to hear it is loaded with nutrients and can be used in multiple ways. It's not something I have used often. Guess I'll be stocking up on recipes though.
