Barbara's TIP: This recipe can be prepared in 1/2 hour if you use tinned black beans which are already cooked !! I have found a brand called Bio Italia which uses cans which are BPA free. At Bio shops you may find the beans packaged in glass jars.
Make Ahead: The black bean–and–quinoa salad can be prepared and refrigerated overnight.
Ideal as a lunch meal which can be taken to work.
Recipe Compliments from : Chef Ken Oringer who believes that chefs need to make a point of eating healthy dishes when they can, so he includes protein-rich quinoa in his diet at least three times a week. Here he mixes the grain with black beans, onions and peppers to make a hearty and very satisfying side dish that's a fun variation on prosaic five-bean salad.
