More About This Recipe
If you're someone that runs the other direction when they hear the word "vegan," don't worry, this easy, Vegan Quinoa and Black Bean dish is so good, even meat-eaters will love it!
You may have a friend or family member who is vegan and wondered, “What in the world am I going to feed them?” But as it turns out, the vegan and non-vegan worlds are really not that far apart.
Quinoa is always a great answer. You've probably already read all the news raving about it and the plethora of health benefits. (And in case you're worried about butchering the pronunciation of the word “quinoa" it's pronounced “KEEN-wa”.)
This Vegan Quinoa and Black Beans cooks up so fast and easy. It has black beans, corn, lime, and cilantro -- all of the Mexican flavors that folks crave so often.
Although it appears and tastes grain-like, quinoa is actually a small seed. It’s full of nutritional benefits and is a complete protein in itself, so you'll feel plenty full eating this dish.
Now, if you absolutely need some meat-based protein, feel free to add some grilled chicken to the recipe. But, honestly, the dish doesn't even need it.
