Pack with: whole-grain crackers or breadsticks. Drink: flavored sparkling water. Prep tip: Easy to modify; just add any crisp vegetables you have on hand (zucchini and fresh chilies are good). Serving tip: This is also nice for a light dinner, mounded on a bed of mixed greens.
- In a saucepan, bring water or broth to a boil. Add quinoa, cover, and simmer on low heat until water is absorbed, 10–15 minutes. Cool.
- In a small bowl, combine olive oil, lime juice, cumin, cayenne, scallions, and cilantro. In a large bowl, combine cooled quinoa, green onions, beans, corn kernels, tomato, bell pepper, green chilies, and mango or peach. Add olive oil mixture and toss gently. Season with salt and pepper.
