    Made it

    Directions

    1. Cook quinoa uncovered in boiling salted water for 10 minutes. (Don't worry about what the quinoa package says about the amount of water.) Drain in sieve, then steam in sieve over boiling water for another 10 minutes, covered. (I usually reserve the boiling water so I don't have to boil the water again). Remove from heat, and let sit while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
    2. Wash black beans under running water, and put in large bowl. Zest the lime over the beans. Add the tomatoes, green onion and cilantro.
    3. Add a bit of olive oil to the quinoa and mix, and then add to the bowl and mix all ingredients.
    4. I usually serve this as a side to pork chops with garlic lime sauce, although I make extra because it's a great snack the next day.
    5. Simplified from a recipe on epicurious.
