Quinoa and "refried" beans

Mmm mm. Not quick, but wicked easy, filling, and yummy!

Soak a bag of red beans overnight. Rinse, and boil/simmer for an hour or two until soft.

Rinse 1/3 cup of quinoa, put in small pan with 2/3 cup water, and a dash of garlic and braggs/soy sauce/salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer until water is absorbed.

Drain and rinse beans again. Throw in a few dashes of garlic powder, cayenne, cumin, and braggs/soy sauce/salt. Mash with a potato masher, then transfer to food processor and puree with a bit of water until smooth. I did it in 2 batches, then put in a large bowl with a cover.

When quinoa is done, spoon into a bowl and spoon a generous layer of pureed beans on top. Put the rest of the beans in the fridge to use in future beaniful adventures.

If you have canned beans, about 1/2 a can will probably be enough to puree for a serving. All I have is dry beans, and I wanted extra for later. :)
