Black Beans & Quinoa with Roasted Peppers


Time: 20 minutes

2 red or yellow bell peppers
1 poblano or green bell pepper
3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tbs. lemon juice
½ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. dried oregano
1 scallion, minced
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 15 oz. can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed

  1. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise. Place them skin side up on a lined baking sheet. Broil until blistered and charred in places, 10-12 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel off the skin and dice the peppers.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, salt, and oregano. Mix in the peppers and all the remaining ingredients.
