This quinoa dish is a delicious and higher protein alternative to Spanish rice. This is a nice side dish to a Mexican meal, or it can be used as a filling in burritos. I like my food on the less-salty side, so you may have to adjust the seasonings to your taste."

Recipe Ingredients for Spanish-Style Quinoa

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
14 1/2 ounce stewed tomato
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
14 1/2 ounce black beans

Recipe Directions for Spanish-Style Quinoa

Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the quinoa, onion, garlic, and green pepper. Cook and stir 5 to 10 minutes until the onion is tender, and the quinoa has lightly toasted. Stir in the tomatos and broth, then season with the chili powder, garlic powder, and cumin. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, add black beans, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Stir the quinoa occasionally as it cooks.
