Black beans, quinoa, and broccoli is one of my family’s favorite healthy dinners! I love that it is super easy to put together. I cook black beans in my slow cooker (soak them for 12 hours, rinse them, and put them in with enough fresh water to cover them plus maybe half an inch of water), steam the broccoli, and cook one cup of quinoa with one and a half cups of chicken broth (water works, too). Sometimes we add a little bit of sharp cheddar cheese (especially if the quinoa is cooked in water), but my kids will eat it like this as well. It’s a dinner that even seven-month-old Anna can eat! Goya sent me the quinoa that I used for this particular dinner – the black beans are also from Goya, but I bought them (and the broccoli) myself.
