Recipe Ingredients for Caribbean Beans and Quinoa

1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
3 cups cooked kidney beans, drained
2 diced tomatoes
1 cup olives
1 tablespoon basil
1 tablespoon oregano
3/4 teaspoon allspice

Recipe Directions for Caribbean Beans and Quinoa

Spray a large, non-stick pot lightly with olive oil. Sauté the peppers, onions, and garlic just until softened. Add the quinoa and toast it for about 4 minutes, just to dry it out a little. Add the remaining ingredients, turn the heat to low, cover and cook until the quinoa is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Stir well before serving. Add a squeeze of fresh lime juice at the table.
