Description

A hearty, protein-packed meal with black beans and quinoa that’s ready in 25 minutes! Get it going and walk away, it’s that simple.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Small Onion, Chopped
  • 2 whole Carrots, Chopped
  • ½ teaspoons Paprika
  • ½ teaspoons Oregano
  • ½ teaspoons Cumin
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Black Beans, Drained But Not Rinsed
  • 1 cup Quinoa, Rinsed
  • 2 cups Vegetable Or Chicken Stock
  • 1 whole Avocado, Sliced
  • ¼ cups Shredded Cheese (Mozzarella, Colby, Or Your Favorite Cheese)

Preparation

Heat the olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and spices, stirring to combine. Cook until onions are just softening, about 3 or 4 minutes.

Add the black beans, quinoa, and stock, and increase the heat to high. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, until all the liquid is absorbed, about 20-25 minutes.

Top with avocado and cheese, and maybe some hot sauce! Enjoy!

Looks good! Curious, however: Why not rinse the black beans?
