This creative spin on my Triple Veggie Quinoa recipe is a great family-style meal for Meatless Mondays! The addition of the eggs and cheese give this dish a unique Mexican flare that your whole gang is sure to love.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- • 8 ounces white button mushrooms, diced
- • 1 red bell pepper, diced
- • 8 stalks kale, cut into small pieces
- • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix (store-bought or try my Taco seasoning blend)
- • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed*
- • 2 cup cooked quinoa
- • 2 large eggs
- • ½ cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 375˚.
Coat pan liberally with oil spray. Add mushrooms, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add red pepper and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, then add kale and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Add taco seasoning mix. Turn off heat and add the black beans. Stir in the cooked quinoa.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs lightly and fold into the quinoa, black bean, and vegetable mixture. Transfer to an oven-safe baking dish, add cheese on top. Place baking dish in oven and bake for 10 minutes, then broil for 5 minutes until cheese is nice and bubbly.
*Rinse beans in a colander under cold running water to remove as much salt as possible. Alternatively, you can also look for low-sodium brands.
