Black Bean Tomato Quinoa {Gluten Free}

Nothing makes me more happy than to pick fresh produce from my garden + not turn on my oven in the heat of the summer.

This Black Bean Tomato Quinoa is a great quick and easy summer dish that doesn’t require the oven! A winner all around.

Not only is it filling, it’s good either warm or cold, as an entree or a side dish, and it’s even Gluten Free!

I love grilling pork chops of shrimp kabobs to serve along side, add some fresh fruit, and voilà dinners ready.
