A good base

This recipe is a good base to work with, but is lacking in seasoning. I added approximatley1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp oregano, a couple of drops of hot pepper sauce, and a pinch of salt. If you add the salsa, you may not need to do this. This would be good with some fat free plain yogurt on top, would work as a stuffing for peppers or zucchini, or could go in a wrap or taco as well.

fast, nutritious, versatile, filling

Nutritious side that tastes great!

I will definitely add this side into my rotation. Cooking for diabetics is not always easy. I might make some substitutions to up the GI (less quinoa in the ratio and more veggies), but overall this was quickly put together and tasted fabulous.

This was awesome. It was the perfect side for our meal, and it's an easy way to incorporate beans and whole grains into the same meal. We will definitely make it again.
