Quite possibly the best recipe I have found on Pinterest. Originally found here.


Wrap this quinoa-black bean filling in flour tortillas and serve with your choice of all the usual fajita toppings: sliced avocado
, tomatoes, bell peppers, sour cream
, grated cheese, sliced red onion.

1 cup quinoa
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 large garlic cloves
1 large handful of cilantro leaves
about a cup ¼ cup fresh lime juice
Ground black pepper
¼ cup extra virgin coconut oil (I used safflower oil)

Bring 2 cups of water, the quinoa, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Along with black beans, place quinoa into a serving bowl. Meanwhile, mince garlic and cilantro in food processor. Add lime juice and a light sprinkling of salt and pepper; process to combine.

Add [coconut] oil; process again to combine. Because quinoa is like a sponge and absorbs the dressing quickly, toss the quinoa and black beans with the dressing right before serving for boldest flavor.

Serve warm.
