Quinoa and Black Beans

This recipe was great! I served it as a side dish, but it definitely has potential to be a main course.

Ingredients :
  •     1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  •     1 onion, chopped
  •     3 cloves garlic, chopped
  •     3/4 cup quinoa
  •     1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  •     1 teaspoon ground cumin
  •     1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  •     salt and ground black pepper to taste
  •     1 cup frozen corn kernels
  •     2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  •     1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Directions :
  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix quinoa into onion mixture and cover with vegetable broth; season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until quinoa is tender and broth is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  3. Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes; mix in the black beans and cilantro.
