This week's recipe is adapted from this recipe found over at the Allrecipes website (one of my favorites). If you aren't familiar with quinoa... you should be! We'll be doing a post about it soon so you can familiarize yourself with it.
Black beans with Quinoa
1 tsp vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic (I used jarred garlic)
3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1.5 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup canned corn (drained)
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup cilantro (if you're rotating, aka not eating straight from food storage only)
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic and saute until lightly browned.
Mix in quinoa, vegetable broth, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Once the quinoa is done, add corn and black beans. Simmer until heated through.
