*Serving Suggestions

Turn it into a bowl of nachos by topping a bowl of corn chips with the quinoa mix and cashew cheese.

Wrap it up in a tortilla or a taco. There's really no wrong way to eat this combo.

Feel free to soak and cook your own black turtle beans (or any legume variant).

If buying canned, take a look at the ingredient list, anything that has more than Beans, Water, or Salt shouldn’t be in your shopping basket.
