What's For Dinner: Quinoa with Black Beans and Taco-Seasoned Roasted Potatoes


I made a quick dinner the other night that combined cooked quinoa, black beans, and roasted sweet potatoes. To make the roasted sweet potatoes, I cut peeled and cut two small sweet potatoes into cubes. I then tossed the cubes with olive oil and about a teaspoon of taco seasoning. The potatoes were roasted in the oven at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. About halfway through the roasting, I removed the potatoes from the oven to toss them and make sure the sides were roasting evenly. To make the dish, I just added together the cooked quinoa, rinsed black beans, and roasted sweet potato. Toppings included a small helping of shredded cheese and a spoonful of salsa. Easy, nutritious, and quick to prepare -- just my kind of dinner.
