I made this as tonight's dinner served with just a mixed green salad. It was excellent on a sweltering Aug evening. It's very simple to make as well as to enjoy. Made for Culinary Quest 2014. Yummy

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Combine the paprika, red pepper flakes, cumin, and 2 teaspoons salt in a shallow dish. Rub the pork all over with the olive oil; then roll in the spice mixture to coat. Transfer to a roasting pan and roast until thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 145 degrees F, 15 - 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the quinoa and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and fluff with a fork. Toss with corn, scallions, salt & pepper. Slice the pork, drizzed with olive oil and serve alongside quinoa and salsa verde.
