Spanish Salsa Black Bean Quinoa

I just love quinoa... and it's so easy to love with how easy it is to make and it's so low maintenance and so hard to mess up! So I made this tasty little number for my lunch this past week. It was tasty! 

  • 1/2 cup qinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 can of black beans
  • 1/4 pound deli-sliced turkey breast, cut into little pieces (For veggie only, skip this!) 
  • Salsa verde
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 
  • cilantro 
  1. Boil the quinoa in the water, as instructed on the package. 
  2. Once the quinoa is cooked, turn down the heat to low. 
  3. Add the black beans and turkey breast, stirring constantly. 
  4. Add the salsa verde, pepper, and salt as you like! (I added lots of salsa and pepper, but hardly any salt)
  5. Garnish with cilantro. 
  6. Enjoy! 
Simply Sweet Note: This can make two medium(ish) sized servings so you can actually eat it for lunch two times!
