What more could you ask for! Below is the recipe.
1 can black beans, rinsed and strained
1 cup of quinoa
2 bell peppers (any color I used green), sliced
1 red onion, sliced
1 tbsp avocado oil
paprika, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper as desired
Cilantro (for garnishing), optional
In a small pot combine 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water. Season water with ~1/2 tsp of the following: paprika, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and oregano. Cover and bring to a boil. When boiling reduce to low heat and simmer.
While quinoa is cooking, in a pan on high heat up 1 tbsp of avocado oil. Throw in bell peppers, onions, and 1/2 tsp of the following spices: paprika, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and oregano. Cook about 8-10 mins on high. Throw in strained black beans and toss together for about 2-3 mins.
At this point, your quinoa should be cooked. Plate 1/2 cup quinoa topped with ~1 cup of your black bean fajita mixture. Serve with cilantro, a lime wedge, and salsa.
That's it! Hope you all enjoy! Try making this next time you're in one of those "takeout is way easier" moods. I promise is super effortless to make.
