Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I make this all the time. It is the best quinoa (keen-wah) dish out there. I have made it as the recipe calls and it is great. I have made it tons of other ways and it's still great. I just add what veggies I have on hand. My favorite way is to add chopped bell pepper with the onions and top with fresh chopped tomatoes, sour cream and shredded cheese. Salsa also gives it a kick even if you don't have cilantro on hand. I DO Not soak the quinoa. My husband likes this rolled into a tortilla for burritos(you could mash part of your black beans before adding them to make it thicker for wrapping up). If you have time to toast the qunioa (until it starts to pop) in a dry skillet, it adds to the flavor. Don't forget that quinoa is a complete protien and the beans and corn mix to make a complete protien for non-meat eaters. This makes a great main meal as well as side dish.
