What's the new Rice and Beans?

While some of you may disagree, I'm voting on quinoa to be the new accompaniment to my bean dishes. Beans and rice are a staple in most Hispanic countries traditionally. Know as comfort food to many, it's a staple in most of our diets here in South Florida. Why not try a new spin on the traditional duo, using any variety of quinoa instead. Just like rice, it's gluten free, but this whole grain is loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein you need to keep you energized and prevent illness.  Paired together, the protein quality is exceptional for those who do not est meat. 
It's so versatile, seen here with cumin, turmeric and chili pepper for an additional kick. I love to add these to a large meal size salad, add to burrito, or even into an egg scramble. #eatlean #eatclean #vegetarianforlife
