Spicy Black Beans And Quinoa

Beans and rice are a classic combination. Unfortunately, most whole grains, such as brown rice, take a lot of energy to cook. So taste this new classic with quinoa as a slightly greener alternative to rice. It's whole grain and cooks super-fast. It's trendy, too.

  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Yellow onion 1 Small, chopped
  Garlic cloves 3 Large, chopped

  Sea salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon (Or To Taste)
  Finely chopped thyme/Oregano 2 Teaspoon
