 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Quinoa
  • 1 1/2 c Fresh or frozen corn
  • -kernels; defrosted
  • Tempeh Adobo Nuggets; see
  • -recipe
  • 1 c Red bell pepper; finely
  • -diced
  • 1/2 c Red onion; finely diced
  • 1/2 c Cilantro; tightly packed,
  • -minced
  • 1 Jalapeno pepper; seeded,
  • -finely diced
  • 1/4 c Lime-Shoyu Vinaigrette; see
  • -recipe
  • 2 tb Fresh lime juice
  • Radicchio; for garnish


1. In a large saucepan, bring 3 quarts of water to a rolling boil.
Meanwhile, swish the quinoa vigorously in a large bowl of warm water. Drain
through a fine-mesh strainer. Repeat this process until the rinsing water
remians just about clear. Drain.

2. Add the quinoa to the boiling water and cook over high heat until almost
done, 11 to 12 minutes. Add the corn and cook until the quinoa is tender
but still crunchy, about 1 minute more. Using a large, fine-mesh strainer,
drain thoroughly, bouncing the strainer up and down to release excess
water. Transfer to a large bowl and stir from time to time to accelerate

3. When the quinoa stops giving off steam, toss in the tempeh nuggets, red
bell pepper, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, and enough vinaigrette to coat the
ingredients lightly. Add the lime juice to taste, is desired. Serve warm or
at room temperature on a bed of radicchio.

Serves 4.

NOTE: "Quinoa is a protein-rich, quick-cooking grain from the Andes. It
must be rinsed well to remove any residual saponin - a natural, bitter
coating. Quinoa is available in natural-food stores and some supermarkets."
