Vegetable Black Bean Quinoa Skillet

Vegetable Black Bean Quinoa Skillet As per my friends' adamant requests, I decided to share a recent recipe of mine that is simply delicious and completely guilt-free, perfect for those of you resolved to eat healthier this year. I adapted this delicious Ready, Set, Eat recipe to include quinoa instead of rice and changed some of it up to suite my ingredients and needs. This dish will serve four and can be reheated in the microwave or on the stove. I probably wouldn't freeze it, but that's just my own personal preference!
