Tropical Quinoa and Black Beans
Posted By Robin Robertson On July 4, 2012 @ 4:14 pm In Main Dishes featuring Grains and/or Beans,We Love Quinoa | 1 Comment
This dramatically colorful dish is flavored with a variety of seasonings for a taste of the tropics. A splash of fresh lime juice when ready to serve to brighten the flavors even more. If you prefer extra heat, add a minced hot jalapeño or Serrano chile in addition to or instead of the cayenne. Cooked brown rice may be used instead of the cooked quinoa. Pineapple can be substituted for the mango. From Quick-Fix Vegan by Robin Robertson © 2011, Andrews McMeel. Photo by Lori Maffei.
Cook the quinoa in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Drain and set aside.
While the quinoa is cooking, heat the oil or water in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ginger, garlic, sugar, thyme, cumin, allspice, coriander, and cayenne and cook, stirring for 1 minute.
Add the beans and reserved quinoa and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the mango, lime juice, and cilantro and cook for a few minutes to heat through. Serve hot (or just warm) with lime wedges, if using.
