If you want to dress up a simple grain-and-bean pilaf in an instant, a good-quality, prepared tomato salsa is the answer. Serve this with a tossed salad and fresh bread; next time vary the type of grain and/or bean you use and serve it with a coleslaw  and a steamed vegetable like broccoli. Adapted from The Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet. 
Serves: 4 to 6
If using quinoa or bulgur, bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the grain, then cover and cook at a gentle simmer for 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. If using couscous, combine it with 2 cups of boiling water in a medium saucepan; cover and allow to soak (off the heat) for 15 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
Stir the remaining ingredients into the saucepan and cook over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until well heated through. Go easy on the salt and pepper; you may need little or none of either. Serve at once.
