These spicy quinoa beans are filling, delicious, easy, healthy and quick to throw together, what more could you want?



Today I served them with oven roasted mushrooms and no oil fries but have also enjoyed this recipe in a wrap slathered with avocado and topped with fresh coriander. Once you have the base you can serve it with what you love!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 4 servings (side)

Ingredients
400 grams mixed beans
400 grams chopped tomatoes
1 cup quinoa (raw)
1 red onion
1 hot chilli
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. dried herbs
2 cups of water
Salt and pepper to taste.
Oil if you use.

Method
In a large non-stick pot over a high heat cook half the diced red onion, the chilli, paprika and herbs in a tbsp. of oil or 1/4 of water (as I have).



Once fragrant and softened pour in the chopped tomatoes and beans and give a good stir. Finally add in the quinoa and water and bring to the boil. Once boiling reduce to a simmer and allow to bubble away until the quinoa is cooked and the water evaporated. About 15 minutes, stir occasionally.



Whilst the quinoa is cooking prepare your sides. I made oil free chips and sprinkled them with the same herbs and paprika for unified flavours, I did the same to the mushrooms.

Once the quinoa is cooked add in the rest of the onions, I do this as I like the slight crunch and freshness. Season to taste and serve hot for lunch, dinner or even breakfast!
