Stepf's Quinoa-Black Bean Casserole



Introduction

This recipe came about because I had just made vegetable enchiladas and had leftovers, plus quinoa from earlier in the week. Thankfully, this experiment yielded a hearty, delicious meal.

I cooked up a batch of dried beans that I seasoned with onions, garlic, chiles and spices. If you use canned beans, you might need more spices. Try adding Chef Meg's Taco Seasoning .

Serve this with steamed broccoli or wilted spinach and a dollop of light sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.
