Veggie Black Beans Quinoa Bowl…

Veggie Black Beans Quinoa Bowl is the ultimate healthy yet satisfying and scrumptious dish. And it’s a really easy, one-pot meal! It’s vegan-friendly and is packed with nutrient-rich grains, vegetables, beans, and tons of flavor.

I love it when a meal is super versatile, and can be used for multiple purposes. I had cooked cabbage leftover, a bag of fresh green beans in the refrigerator, black beans and yams in my pantry and always quinoa here to make a delicious vegetarian/vegan dish. I imagine that it would be delicious topped with a fried or poached egg for brunch as well but this time I threw a cooked yam on the side! Yum, Yum!

Happy Meatless Monday!
