Corner Bakery Copycat Recipe

4 cups of water
3 teaspoons of reduced sodium Better than Bouillon Chicken Base (Substitute with your preferred chicken base brand, but don’t leave this out.)
1 cup of uncooked white Quinoa, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup fresh chopped tomato
1/2 cup finely diced white onion
1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 1 whole lemon)
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil

Boil 4 cups of water with the chicken base in a medium saucepan. The chicken or veggie broth will add flavor to the otherwise bland quinoa. Add the quinoa to the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender, about 10 minutes. Strain and let the quinoa rinse completely. Combine the cooled quinoa with the tomatoes, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, lemon juice, and olive oil in a medium bowl. Mix all the ingredients well and add salt and pepper to taste.
