1 cup quinoa

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup minced onion

1 clove garlic, minced

2 cans (15 oz each) black beans, rinsed and drained

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 tsp chili powder (mild)

Pinch of cayenne pepper (spicy)

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1 cup shredded lettuce


Optional Topping Ingredients

Rinse the quinoa thoroughly in a mesh strainer or sieve, drain.

Pour quinoa into a saucepan along with 2 cups of water. Bring the quinoa to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer. Cover the pot. Let the quinoa simmer for about 20 minutes till it becomes tender and all the liquid has been absorbed. Keep a close eye to make sure the quinoa doesn't burn.

While quinoa is cooking, heat 1 tbsp of oil in another saucepan over medium heat. Pour minced onion into the saucepan and saute for a few minutes till it softens and begins to turn brown. Add the minced garlic to the pot and let it saute for 1-2 minutes longer till aromatic.

Add the black beans to the pot of onions along with 1/2 cup water, 2 tbsp of chopped fresh cilantro, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Bring the beans to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low. Let the beans simmer for 15 minutes till the liquid is mostly evaporated. Stir in 2 tbsp of fresh lime juice. Season with salt to taste.

When the quinoa is fully cooked, remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Use the fork to mix in 2 tbsp of chopped cilantro and 2 tbsp fresh lime juice. Season with salt to taste.

Assemble your burrito bowls. Divide the cilantro lime quinoa between four bowls.

Top each portion of quinoa with 1/4 cup of shredded lettuce.

Top each portion of lettuce with simmered black beans.

Top the black beans with your choice of Optional Topping Ingredients (ideas listed above).

Serve warm.
