I don't normally do vegan stuff because I am too in love with animal products. I like meat, but I could live without that. I have no interest in living without cheese, yogurt, butter, honey, etc. But occasionally I make a vegan dish not with the intention of being vegan, it just works out that way. Today was one of those days. And I thought I would share just in case you are in that winter rut and need a little inspiration for something that tastes and feels "fresh" but still comforting.

Mix these together to your liking, with the majority being spinach and quinoa:
cooked quinoa
fresh spinach, just wilted in olive oil
fresh tomato
diced onion
black beans, drained and rinsed
oregano, cumin, coriander (or cilantro), salt and pepper (about 1/2 tsp each of the first three, and the last two just to taste)
Put the onion, beans and spices (minus S&P) into a skillet with a little oil and cook until the spices become fragrant and the onion softens a little. Add to the quinoa, top with spinach and tomato and add the salt and pepper to taste.

I was just doing this to use up a couple of leftovers from other meals (quinoa, beans) and it is SO good. Wow. I plan to make this again in a much larger batch to have leftovers. It is awesome! Enjoy. :)

    That does sound good! If you get a minute, could you post in the Happy Hippies Vegan Recipes thread? I know we have lots of vegans in the tribe, and I'll bet they'd like this!
