For corn:
Rub corn with olive oil and evenly sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Place on a foil lined cookie sheet and roast in a 425 degree oven for 25 minutes or so. Using tongs, rotate corn for even roasting. Remove, cool and cut kernels off the cob.

For red quinoa:
Place red quinoa, 2 C of filtered water and 1/2 t of salt in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and cover. Cook until water evaporates and quinoa “sprouts.” Spread cooked quinoa on a cookie sheet for cooling.
