Bring quinoa and water to a boil, then reduce to a medium-low simmer and simmer while covered for about 15 minutes. Once it is finished, remove it from the heat and allow to cool.
While waiting on the quinoa, mix together the olive oil, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt and lime juice.
Mix together the cherry tomatoes, green onions and black beans and add to the cooled quinoa. Pour the dressing over top then add your cilantro and toss to coat.
Serve immediately or cooled.
