Quinoa and Black Beans
"Whether you're trying quinoa for the first time or just trying a new recipe for quinoa, this mixture of quinoa, black beans, corn, and spices will make this dish a new favorite.""This was so fresh and so light - a really great recipe. The pacing of it is also great - sometimes I don't do all my prep before I start, and then I'm frantically trying to chop or tear while the pot bubbles away, but this was a really easy, calm recipe.
The nutritionals seem to be a bit wack - not that that's the poster's fault. This is a Weight Watchers recipe and is an 8 point meal- according to these nutritionals it would be 19 points a serving! " - JessieEK
