Black Bean and Quinoa with Roasted Peppers

Image source:


  • 2 Red or Yellow Bell Peppers
  • 1 Poblano or Green Bell Pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Scallion (minced)
  • 1 cup Cooked Quinoa
  • 1 15-ounce can No-Salt Added Black Beans (drained and rinsed)


Cut the peppers in half length-wise. Place them skin side upon a lined baking sheet. Broil until blistered and charred in places (about 10 – 12 minutes). When cool enough to handle, peel off the skin and dice the peppers. In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and oregano. Mix the bell peppers and all the remaining ingredients. Serves 4.
