One-Pot Mexican Quinoa from ‘Crazy Vegan Kitchen’

We made One Pot Mexican Quinoa from CrazyVeganKitchen for dinner last night and fell in love!!  This is one of the best recipes we have tried in a long time so I felt I had to share it here.   Our dinner conversation sounded something like “Omg this is so good”… “This is literally so good”  “I love this” (very intellectually stimulating….ha).  Needless to say I high recommend it!

This vegan recipe is protein-packed with quinoa and black beans and super easy to make.  This is something I can totally see myself making a large batch of on Sundays to take for lunches during the week.

Check out the recipe here.  Modifications we made were as follows:

– Spices: omit salt, add approx.  2 tsp curry powder, 2 tsp chilli powder, an additional 1/2 tsp cumin and a little more cayenne, mix in chopped green onions before serving.

– Cashew Sour Cream:  We used this recipe from Oh She Glows.  If you have not made Cashew Sour Cream before your mind will be blown and I don’t think this recipe would be the same without it.

We also omitted the carrots (because we didn’t have any on hand) and rinsed the diced tomatoes (using 1/2 cup vegetable broth and  1/2 cup water instead of the tomato juices).

Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂  xo Jessica

    My Wife Makes doesn’t seem to be up and running anymore. Any chance you could put the actual recipe here?
