Foodie Friday: Quinoa and Spicy Bean Salad

Go to any Carribbean country and they will serve peas and rice or beans and rice.

However as we learned the arsenic levels within rice can be dangerous. We found a great alternative that happens to be a superfood which is Quinoa.

It is prepared exactly like rice, but without the excessive starch and arsenic.

Here's our take on Beans and Rice:

1. Prepare Quinoa just like a rice rinse throughly.

2. Bring pot of water to a boil, add:
1. One chopped onion
2. One bunch of scallions
3. One bell pepper
4. 2 Tablespoon of Chilli Blend (Whole Foods)
5. Add Quinoa

3. When Quinoa is finished cooking add organic black beans

4. Cool and serve on a bed of tomato, greens, and cucumber

Cheers to a healthy and filling summer salad!
