If I could give this six stars, I would. This satisfies ALL my requirements for a "great" recipe! Get a load of this, and I am not exaggerating: it's quick and easy, inexpensive, attractive t...

Agree with other reviewers that 1 can of black beans is enough. Interesting combo, but quite light. Would want this to be more flavorful, if it is to stand on its own vs. as a side dish.

This recipe was great! I served it as a side dish, but it definitely has potential to be a main course. I used one can of black beans and chicken stock because I didn't have veggie stock on hand...

This one gets five stars. We had never tried quinoa, so we weren't sure what to expect. I followed another reviewer's tip to rinse the quinoa well before cooking, and there was no bitter taste. ...

The proportions and flavors are mostly good, and I changed the directions only slightly. Two cans of black beans seemed too much to me, so I stopped at one. Make sure you rinse your quinoa if it...

I used bulgur wheat instead of quinoa (I'm a poor college student and the bulgur was MUCH cheaper!) but the recipe was still fantastic!!! The spices are just right! I used 1 can of black beans a...

My husband loved this! I decided at the last minute to use only one can of black beans. I put the first one in, and it seemed like another one would be overkill. I've never cooked quinoa befo...

Simple, healthy, adaptable, yay! This was a little bland for our tastes, so I'll be kicking up the spices a notch but I'll definitely make it again. I doubled the recipe except for the black bea...
