If you’ve wanted to try quinoa but been unsure what to do with it, give this high-protein black-bean dish a try.
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1½ cups vegetable broth
1 tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
salt & ground black pepper to taste
1 cup frozen corn kernels
2 (15-oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
Prep 15 m; cook 35 m
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
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.
Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes; mix in the black beans and cilantro.
