This is a spin on the classic Southern red beans and rice. Here I use cooked quinoa and cooked beans for a meal than can be made in about 15 minutes. If desired, you can add about two organic chopped andouille sausages to the onion and pepper mixture. Serve with braised collard greens or steamed broccoli for a balanced meal. If you don’t have any cooked quinoa on hand already, you’ll need to cook one cup for this recipe.

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onions diced
1 large red bell peppers seeded and diced
1 teaspoons Herbamare (or sea salt)
1 teaspoons smoked paprika
½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 pinches cayenne pepper
2 cups cooked red beans
3 cups cooked quinoa


chopped parsley
green onions thinly sliced
