I love quinoa as it is healthy, easy to cook and super delicious. You can make this salad in a jiffy, if you have leftover quinoa or cooked quinoa ready. It is wholesome, easy to prepare and makes a filling lunch. Today we will learn how to make quinoa with black beans, tomato and capsicum following this easy recipe.
Wash quinoa well and cook covered with 1 cup of water in a pan. Fluff it with a fork and keep it aside.
If using dried black beans, wash and soak it overnight. Pressure cook with a little salt for 3 whistles until soft.
Finely chop onions, ginger (after peeling the skin) and garlic finely.
Heat oil in a pan, add onions, ginger and garlic. Saute until onions turn transparent. Add paprika and saute for a few more minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes, capsicum, cooked quinoa, cooked black beans and salt needed. Mix well (no need to cook) and remove from heat.
Add lemon juice and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
Enjoy it warm. As we have added lot of vegetables and black beans, you do not need any side dish for this. But if preferred enjoy it with raita/pachadi.
