This dish is delicious served warm or cold. The black beans and quinoa are both healthy (and tasty!) sources of protein and the cilantro adds a little extra zest. It is one of my family’s favorite one-pot meals!
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1 cup frozen (or fresh!) corn
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
salt & pepper
Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the garlic & onion and cook until lightly browned.
Add quinoa, broth and cumin. Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
Bring to a boil. Then cover, reduce heat, and let simmer for 20 minutes.
Add corn and simmer another 5 minutes.
Mix in black beans and cilantro and enjoy!
