Beans and Quinoa...and TVP

This was my first time cooking with quinoa and TVP (textured vegetable protein).

1 cup canned black beans
1 onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups water
1 cup TVP
chili powder
1 cup quinoa

Bring water to a boil. Add black beans, onion, and garlic. 

After 5 minutes add TVP, chili powder, and cumin.

Rinse quinoa to remove outer coating. I completely failed at this. See how it first stuck to the wet measuring cup, and then was so small that it fell through the holes in the strainer?

After another 5 minutes add quinoa.

Boil for 15 minutes or until most of water has been absorbed.

Serve with the option of adding crushed red pepper flakes.

How was it?

It was bland without the red pepper, but only tasted pure spicy with the red pepper.

My parents were not too impressed with it.

And I binged on it.
