Black Bean Quinoa

 

We served this at our Grand Opening this week and it was a huge hit.
1 medium sweet onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup quinoa (uncooked), rinsed (red or white)
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Kosher salt or sea salt to taste
1 (4.5 ounce) can diced green chilis
1 (10 ounce) can of diced tomatoes
1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro
1 3/4 cup vegetable broth, low sodium
In a large skillet saute diced onions until tender about 4 minutes, add garlic and saute one additional minute.  Add the remaining ingredients in the order listed above.  Cover,bring to a boil, reduce heat to a low boil and cook 15-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.  Remove from heat and allow to sit 5 minutes covered before serving.  Fluff quinoa with a large spoon and serve.
Note: As always, use organic products when possible to reduce pesticide/herbicide exposure.
