One pot quinoa cannellini beans skillet
4 people adjust servings
Quinoa cannellini beans skillet is a quick and easy one-pot vegetarian meal with rich Italian flavors!
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 small yellow onion, chopped
- 1 medium red or orange bell pepper, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup quinoa uncooked
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes regular or fire-roasted
- 1 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
- 1 15.5 oz. can cannellini beans rinsed and drained
- 3 to 4 cups fresh spinach or baby spinach
- chopped fresh basil, grated Parmesan cheese
- Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
- Add onion and bell pepper and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another 30 seconds.
- Add quinoa, seasonings, tomatoes and vegetable broth and broil to a boil.
- Cover the pot, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-18 minutes, until quinoa is cooked through and the liquid is mostly absorbed.
- Stir in cannellini beans and spinach until warmed through and spinach is slightly wilted, 2-3 minutes.
- Serve hot, sprinkled with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese, if desired.
You can substitute fresh parsley for the basil if you prefer.
You can add 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to make it a bit spicy.
And you can certainly add some rotisserie chicken if you don’t want this as a vegetarian meal.
