Simple Southern Quinoa – VEGAN

If you’re a new vegan (or looking to become vegan) it can be a little overwhelming! I get messages ALL THE TIME from friends looking for advice and ideas on how to start their vegan journey. When I first decided to take the leap, I was concerned about convenience (or lack there of) because I don’t love cooking all the time. Thankfully though, I’ve had an opportunity to try out quite a few easy vegan recipes, and I wanted to share one of my favorites with y’all!

Mexican dishes are an all time favorite of mine, so anything vegan w Mexican flavor is right up my alley!


  • Quinoa (and water to cook)
  • Canned corn, drained
  • Tomatoes – fresh or diced in can
  • Black beans
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lime or lime juice
  • Jalapenos (or not, if you don’t enjoy spicy!)
  • Spices – Chili powder, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper
  • Avocado


  1. In a saucepan, add water, quinoa, and tomatoes. When liquid starts boiling, reduce heat to simmer until quinoa is done.
  2. Stir in corn, black beans, lime juice, spices, and fresh cilantro.
  3. Serve with sliced avocado & enjoy 🙂

If you make a large batch, you can stick it in the fridge for 3-4 days and serve either warm or cold!

I hope y’all enjoy this super easy + super delicious recipe like I do!
