RM 2: Black eyed bean Quinoa with Caramalized Onions

This is my second recipe that I experimented with Quinoa, this time with beans...:)

Black eyed bean Quinoa with Caramalized Onions


1 cup cooked Quinoa (Cook as per package instructions)
1/4 cup fire roasted Bell peppers (store bought)
1 tsp Olive oil
1/2 can Black eyed beans
1 tomato, finely chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp toasted Sesame oil (optional: for garnishing)


1. Heat oil in a wok and saute tomatoes and bell peppers for 2-3 mins. Add beans and season with salt & pepper. Cook for 5-6 mins on a medium-low flame.

2. Add cooked quinoa to the bean mixture and mix contents well. Cook for 3-4 mins until the flavors blend together.

3. Finally garnish with toasted sesame oil and lime juice. Serve hot with caramelized onions.

Caramelized Onions:

Cut 1 medium Onion into thin juveniles and separate the layers. In a wok, heat some oil and add onions all at once. Toss them using a spatula and cook for 5-6 mins on a medium flame, until they reach a dark brownish glaze *. Season slightly if desired. Serve warm.

*One can sprinkle some water (when done) to deglaze the onions.
