Then add the onion to some oil in a pan and cook till till softened. Then I use my handy garlic press and add the garlic. After 2-3 minutes I add the black beans and 1/2 cup of water (or chicken stock.) Usually most recipes say to rinse their beans- I don't. I may drain some of the liquid on the top, but I just throw the whole thing in there. Then I add the spices and chopped cilantro. I like it spicy and I like cumin so I probably do a lot. You probably only need 1/4 -1/2 tsp. Let the beans simmer for approx 15 minutes and add some lime juice.
Then we layer our bowls with the quinoa, then the black bean mixture, and then any of the following:
Salsa or Pico De Gayo
Sour Cream (or plain Greek yogurt works)
Enjoy this yummy healthy family favorite. Keep in mind Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner.
