Here's all you need:
1. Quoinoa ( we used red, but either kind will do)
2. Bell pepper- red/yellow, whatever
3. 1 can refried beans ( Amy's Organics is our favorite brand for all things canned or frozen) If you can't find this brand, make sure you choose fat free/vegetarian beans.)
4. Red Onion
6. romaine Lettuce
The amounts of all of these are up to you. I can tell you that we used 1 full can of beans, 1 cup of quinoa, 2 whole peppers, 1 full avocado, and 1/2 red onion. You can use as much romaine lettuce as you want.
Cook the quinoa. While this is happening, you can chop the veggies and the romaine. Then heat the beans on the stove over low heat. Stir in the beans, onions, and peppers. When the quinoa is cooked, stir this into the bean and veggie mix as well. Then serve this up onto your bowls of romaine and top it with avocado slices.
This is a quick and healthy post-workout refuel.
This was given to me via Hillary Biscays blogsite, my husband Phil and I had it for dinner last night and it was surprisingly very tasty and filling. I hope you guys like it. It's also cheap and very easy and fast to make.
