This bright and colorful side dish is delicious on its own, or as a complement to meat, poultry or fish.  You can substitute red quinoa or regular quinoa for the black quinoa, although I love the contrast of the dark color of the grain with the corn and sweet potatoes and the brightness of the red peppers. In addition, when steaming the quinoa, I usually use vegetable stock or chicken broth to steam the quinoa which adds a bit more flavor.
