  • 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preparation

Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until most of the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, 15 – 20 minutes. Drain; rinse under cold running water and drain again. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the black-eyed peas, bell pepper, celery, cilantro and scallions.

 

Whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, salt, and cumin in a small bowl. Add to the quinoa mixture, tossing to mix well. Sprinkle with the bacon just before serving.
