Instructions
  1. Rinse black beans and soak them overnight.
  2. Rinse black beans once again, then place them in a medium pot with 2 cups of water, 1/2 sliced onion, 1 sliced jalapeno, and 3 cloves of sliced garlic. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer and cook until soft, about 40 minutes. The yield is about 2 cups of cooked black beans.
  3. Put rinsed quinoa and 1 1/4 cups water in a medium pot. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer until water is absorbed, about 17 minutes. Stir in juice and zest from 2 limes and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. Cover for 5 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup diced onion, 1/4 cup diced jalapenos, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 handful chopped cilantro, and juice and zest from 1 lime.
  5. Layer beans, quinoa, and salsa on a plate and enjoy.
