Turmeric Quinoa Salad

1 Small Onion

1 Clove Garlic

1 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds

1/4 Cup Corn

1/3 Cup Red Pepper, diced

1 Teaspoon Turmeric

Rinse the quinoa in water, until the water runs clear. In a medium saucepan, add 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa and lower the heat. Cook the quinoa until the water is all absorbed and the quinoa is translucent. This takes around 10 to 15 minutes. 

Heat the coconut oil in a skillet and lightly saute the onion, garlic, mustard, cumin, corn, and red pepper. Add the turmeric, sea salt, and quinoa. Stir together and serve over a mixed salad. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the salad and enjoy!
