Quinoa and Black Beans


This is the recipe that I made for our Christmas Mexican dinner. I found the original on allrecipes.com but I modified a little bit of it, so it is not the same one you will find there.

It is another easy, fast, good for you dish.

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh cinaltro
  1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and saute until lightly browned.
  2. Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Mix in the black beans and cilantro and heat through.
