  • - 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • - 2 medium zucchini, diced
  • - 4 scallions, diced (I used more because I love scallions)
  • - 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • - 1 cup corn, canned or frozen (defrosted if frozen/drained if canned)
  • - 2 T lemon juice
  • - 2 T butter
  • - 1 T honey
  • - salt & pepper to taste


  • Cook quinoa according to package directions. Once quinoa has been cooked, place in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Place a medium sized skillet over medium high heat, melt butter in it, and then add in zucchini and garlic. Cook until zucchini is tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Then add in corn and honey and cook until heated through.
  • Add the corn and zucchini to the quinoa, along with the scallions and lemon juice and toss to combine.
  • Season with salt & pepper.
  • Chill in the refrigerator and serve cold.
