One pot quinoa and beans stew


This recipe is really quick and easy. Perfect for those days when we did not have the time to soak dried beans for all night. No less tasty, this stew uses the products that propably we all already have in the pantry. The only uncommon element is quinoa. This cereal is particularly popular because of its high protein content, good for vegetarians and vegans. I, personally, just like the taste of it.
