How To Make Cilantro Lime Quinoa | Gluten-Free & Vegan

Cilantro Lime Quinoa is a nutritious and delicious dish that will take your salads and burritos to the next level. This vegan, gluten-free recipe is also great alone as a side dish. I was inspired by the Cilantro Lime Rice at Chipotle and wanted to create a healthier version of it. Cilantro is full of antioxidants, lime aids in digestion, and quinoa is a complete plant protein containing all nine of the essential amino acids.
