There is something wonderful about one bowl meals. For one thing, they're so easy. I'm a big fan, particularly when they are this delicious and healthy. Fresh corn, black beans, and red quinoa give this scramble a Southwestern slant. Add to that baby spinach, red peppers, scallions, crumbled feta cheese and herbs, bound together in a spicy Harissa sauce. Yum.
Vegetarian, and vegan too without the cheese.
1- 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed in cold water and drained
1 cup red quinoa, uncooked
2 cups water
1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
1 red pepper, diced
3 scallions cut on a diagonal into 1/2" pieces (both white and green)
2 large handfuls of baby spinach, rinsed
1/4 cup feta cheese
2 T. cilantro, chives, and thyme, minced
2 T. olive oil
1/2 cup Heinz Chili Sauce
2 t. Harissa or to taste
Make Sauce: Combine the chili sauce with the Harissa and set aside.
quinoa: Bring 2 cups water and a pinch of salt to a boil in a saucepan.
Add quinoa, reduce heat to a slow simmer and cover. Cook about 10- 15
minutes or until all the water has evaporated. Uncover, fluff with a
fork, and set aside to cool.
