Hudson just started eating real food, so we are always experimenting in our house. My criteria for meals is: yummy taste, healthy ingredients, and easy to make. Today I’m sharing my Chicken, Quinoa, and Black Bean Bowls. I made up this recipe based on things that Hudson loves to eat….and it turns out my husband and I love it too!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes
1 15oz can black beans
1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
shredded cooked chicken
salt and pepper to taste
First, cook your quinoa. Here’s a tip: cook it in chicken broth instead of water…it will taste so much better! Then shred your zucchini using a cheese grater. Steam it in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Next, rinse the black beans and then add everything except the cheese to a skillet and cook over medium-low heat until warmed through.
Place the cooked mixture on top of your quinoa and then top with cheese! My husband and I added sour cream and salsa to ours.
Hudson’s bowl ready to go.
Yum! Hudson loved this meal and ate almost all of it.
Hudson goes crazy over quinoa….but word of warning: it’s crazy messy. But what isn’t when you have a one year old?
Especially when this happens.
