I love quinoa. Try this delicious recipe. I know anyone would love this one:
Quinoa and Black Beans
1 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic
¾ cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed briefly in cold water
2 cups vegetable broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup frozen corn kernels
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, shallot, celery and sauté until lightly browned. Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth.
Season with salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir frozen corn into mixture and let simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Mix in the black beans and cilantro.
Simmer for 10 minutes, turn heat to low. And it’s ready to eat it up.
I have a couple of friends who do not like quinoa, but they love this recipe. ENJOY.
