Meatless Monday – Vegan quinoa burrito bowl

Quinoa (pronounced “keen-wah”) is popular for its high nutritional value, including an abundance of polyphenols that help reduce the risk of cancer.

Serves 2-4

You’ll need: 1 Tbsp B-well Canola Oil; ½ red onion, diced; 1 bell pepper, diced; ½ tsp salt; 1 tsp ground cumin; 1 cup quinoa, rinsed well; 1 cup salsa; 1 cup water; 1 ½ cup cooked black beans.

Toppings – Avocado, guacamole, fresh coriander, green onions, salsa, lime wedges, shredded lettuce.

How to:

Heat the B-well Canola Oil in a pot. Sauté the onions and peppers until they start to soften, about 5 – 8 mins, then add in cumin and salt and sauté another minute.

Add in the quinoa, salsa, water, and beans, then cover with a lid and gently simmer until the quinoa completely absorbs the liquid (this should take 10-15 min).

Remove the lid and fluff quinoa with a fork. Serve warm, with any toppings you love, such as avocado, diced onions, salsa, and shredded lettuce.
