Vegetable & Kidney Bean Quinoa



(makes about 2 servings)

  • 1 C (cooked) Quinoa (about 1/4 C uncooked)
  • 1.5 C veggie broth
  • 1 can kidney beans (rinsed)
  • 1/2 C tomato sauce
  • Veggies: I used sliced zucchini, squash, green pepper, and tomato.
  • Cracked pepper to taste


If you don’t have the quinoa cooked yet, do that first. Then, start with the cooked quinoa and veggie broth. Put them both into a pan, and then add the veggies that need longer to cook. I added my zucchini and squash.

Bring the mixture to a boil. Once it starts boiling, bring it down to a simmer and add the rest of the ingredients — kidney beans, tomatoes, green pepper, tomato sauce, and cracked pepper.

Most of the liquid should have boiled off by now. Stir until it’s warmed through, and then serve!


Enjoy :)
