Quinoa & black bean pilaf

Serves 4 as a main, 8 as a side
1 T coconut oil
1/2 large or whole small sweet onion
1 large or 2 small green peppers (sweet or slightly hot)
1-2 cloves garlic
1 cup quinoa
1 1/2c veggie broth
Cumin & paprika to taste
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed

Sauté the onion & pepper in the oil until starting to soften. Stir in garlic. Then add the quinoa followed by the broth. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes. When the quinoa is almost done (most liquid absorbed) stir in the beans & spices and stir/simmer until all the broth is absorbed. Serve as a side with anything or as a quick light meal on it’s own!

    I’m adding some garlic salt instead of garlic cloves, hope it’s fine, as I don’t wanna use garlic here directly…
