Stove Top Quinoa and Black Beans

This recipe is a must try for those who need quick, healthy and delicious recipes to make for their families!  Full of wonderful flavors, this recipe has minimum prep time and simmers on its own while you do the many other things on your to-do-list besides cooking dinner.

This side dish can be used in many different ways as well.  Serve it alongside grilled chicken or fish, eat over a bed of greens, carve out a large zucchini and use this for stuffing to make Zucchini Boats or add leftover shredded chicken to it for a one dish meal.  Leftovers (if there are any) can be separated into serving size containers and packed in your lunch throughout the week.

We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!  Experiment with the ingredients!  This recipe is very versatile and we are confident it will become a family favorite!
