I had a fairly stressful day today, so I did not feel like spending too much time on cooking. I thought of this in about 20 seconds and made it. I am listing it under the new category called “sixpence recipes,” after some great input from a fellow vegan.This category will contain suggestions affordable for most. The current recipe costs about $3 in ingredients ( a fraction of the cost of $8 package of quinoa–about 1/4 or less, and 1/3 of $1 for the peppers, about the same for the onion and cilantro) and about $1 for the beans.
What you need:
1/2 cup of quinoa
1/5 red onion
1 green bell pepper
1/2 cup of black beans
olive oil (about a tea spoon).
Chop up the onion and place it in a pot with 1 cup of water together with the quinoa. Add salt and a tsp of olive oil. Boil for about 15 minutes, then remove from the stove.
Place the quinoa in a plate and mix with the black beans. Chop up some cilantro add it to the quinoa and beans. Mix them up well.
Cut the top of the green pepper and remove the seeds. Stuff the pepper with the beans and quinoa mix. Done! Eat the quinoa and the container :).
