Food Storage Friday: Black beans & quinoa

Quinoa and Black Beans Recipe

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
serves 10

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.
