“I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.”

~W. C. Fields

Since I completely skipped my costume update of the week, here is a cooking update instead!

So tonight is my cooking night, again. I was pressed for time and quinoa came to mind. I did a quick search on my phone for quinoa recipes and this came up: Quinoa and Black Bean. Sounded delicious to me! First thing I did was change the servings from the default 10 to 4 (I like left overs).

It was pretty easy overall. Simmer the quinoa in seasoned vegetable broth (seasoned with salt, pepper, cumin, and cayenne pepper) and when it is almost finished, add corn and beans (I used canned for both, though the recipe calls for frozen corn). Before the quinoa finished simmering, it smelled amazing! I did end up needing to add more vegetable broth.

Here is the end result! Again, I need serving dishes...

Verdict? I thought it was quite tasty! Isaac liked it, too. I think the seasoning came out well, considering I hardly know what I am doing. I probably added the most cumin because I like it. Very little cayenne pepper and pepper. However, even though it was altered for four, I felt as though we barely had enough for two... In the future, 10 may not be too many servings.
