Coconut Lime Quinoa // made with only three ingredients, this dish goes with EVERYTHING!

If you’ve ever been wanting a quinoa recipe that goes with everything, this is it.

Seriously. From sweet, to savory. From breakfast, to dinner. It’s just plain perfect.

And the best part? It only uses three ingredients!

Three ingredients are used for this coconut lime quinoa: coconut milk, quinoa + lime!

That’s right. THREE.

Coconut milk, quinoa and lime. Plain, simple and absolutely amazing.

Truth be told, I’ve never really cooked quinoa in coconut milk before. I always just use water (watch my video tutorial!) and then flavor it afterwards.

This has opened up a whole new world. I’ve been dreaming of the possibilities since first tasting it. And don’t worry, when I do make new variations, you know they’ll be coming your way!

Need a recipe that goes with everything? Try this coconut lime quinoa! It's only three ingredients and tastes delicious!

For now, just enjoy this crazy delicious and absurdly easy coconut lime quinoa. You’re going to love it.

My favorite uses so far:

inside burritos
with black beans and salsa
topped with a fried egg and chopped avocado
served on top of a salad
used as a taco filling
AND eaten 100% as is!
