Another great dish that was SUPER easy. This could easily be made for 1 or 2 people, and was GREAT as a left over for lunch the next day.
2 cups quinoa
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1/2 can garbanzo beans (add more if you like)
about 1/4 cucumber diced
1 1/2 cups beef broth (can use water instead but the beef broth gives the quinoa a great flavor)
Italian sausage (optional, if you want a side of meat)
What I'd add next time:
More garbanzo beans
Cook the quinoa according to box, basically just like rice, but using beef broth instead of water. I use my rice cooker and it's easy. Get the rest of the ingredients ready. I decided to throw in some cooked, sliced italian sausage because I know Josh likes to have meat with most meals and it was a great flavor addition to the veggie quinoa. This is an easy dish to make and like I said great as a leftover.
This would be a great side dish if you're having a larger meal too.
