Red Beans and Rice Quinoa

Written on August 14, 2008 by Kevin.

When I first learned that Kaitlyn had food allergies, I went on a hunt for tasty recipes that would work around her. Something that she could eat and not feel like she was eating something else because of the allergies. As a family, we will need to adjust the things we eat to accommodate her allergies. While hunting, I came across the following recipe. It is both tasty and healthy. It is now one of our family favorites. Kaitlyn gobbles this up like nothing else. She can easily down an entire plate of it.

cooking spray
1-14 oz package turkey kielbasa smoked sausage, cut diagonally in 1/4 inch slices
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper
1 clove minced garlic
2 (16 oz) cans dark red kidney beans, drained
1 (14.5 oz) can Italian style diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup water
1 cup uncooked rice quinoa

Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray. Cook the sausage on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until it is heated through. Stir in the onion, green pepper and garlic and saute until the onion is tender. Add the beans, can of tomatoes and pepper. Cook until heated through. Add the water and rice quinoa and stir. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
