I like this recipe because it’s filling, healthy, easy, and vegetarian! Quinoa has a lot of great health benefits, so overall this recipe is great if you’re dieting.


Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3/4 cup quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions:

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix quinoa into onion mixture and cover with vegetable broth; season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until quinoa is tender and broth is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  3. Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes; mix in the black beans and cilantro.

Yield: 10 servings
