Quinoa and Black Beans
November 22, 2009

Many reviewers reported the dish ended up mushy or soupy. Quinoa is a very, very delicate grain, so I modified the recipe as follows: I cooked the quinoa, spices and broth in a separate saucepan, according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, I sauted the onions, and garlic. Then I added the beans/corn. When onions/beans/corn were heated through, I VERY gently tossed in the cooked quinoa & cilantro, being careful not to stir too much. Turned out great! I hope this is helpful for other readers.
