Quinoa, Tuna & Black Bean Pilaf

Submitted by: DAMIENDUCKS

Introduction

A protein-tastic pilaf that will power you all day! This was one of those "I have no food in the house but want dinner al the same" inventions, but it turned out so well I thought I'd better write it down! Simplicity really is more!

This is great if you have leftover quinoa to use up, as well...you'll want about 3 c. cooked.
