This also happens to be an excellent meal prep idea, as it reheats from the fridge or freezer extremely well. I recently made it specifically for the freezer to have on hand when a nourishing hot meal is needed! The ingredients are simple, the method is basically fool-proof, and it comes together really quickly. I absolutely love this recipe, and I hope that you try it out and love it too!

If you want a quick, easy, healthy, weeknight dinner then you have come to the right spot! This one pot mexican quinoa is vegan, healthy, and requires minimal prep work. The whole family loves this when I make it. It is so flavouful, and it keeps you full for a long time because it has a lot of protein from the quinoa and beans!
