I LOVE QUINOA. I try to eat it several times a week since it is a complete protein, and I eat mostly vegan so it is challenging to get complete proteins in my diet. I’ve also had people tell me that they wish they liked quinoa, but it doesn’t have enough flavor. Well, look no further, because this recipe definitely is packed with flavor and should please vegans and meateaters alike.
I found this easy quinoa recipe with a southwestern twist on Pinterest from fitnessmagazine.com and added a little flair of my own (beans, avocado, crunchy chips, and spice) to make this a hearty vegan meal! You can also serve it as a side dish. It’s super quick and easy to make, so I give it 5 stars. (The only thing I had trouble with was the can opener, but that’s not unusual for me.)
