I made black bean quinoa.

This was quite a delicious addition to our weekend: black bean quinoa.

Quinoa is a super easy grain to cook with, but one that also makes you look fancy. It doesn’t take as long as regular rice, although it’s not quite as quick as Uncle Ben’s 10-minute rice which we are accustomed to.

We already had the black beans prepared from dry beans, which we had done earlier in the week (and was easier than I expected in the crockpot). We prepped the quinoa, added the beans and a can of corn (and a generous helping of seasonings like cumin and even a little cayenne), and that was it! The meal was delicious and hearty, especially when wrapped with a flour tortilla like we did for our leftovers the next day.

Have you ever used quinoa?

  1. I have heard so much about quinoa and have yet to try it. I might have to add it to my to-do list. That dish looks tasty!
