in grad school one of my stables for dinner was beans and rice. for meatless monday i thought i’d jazz that concept up with a little twist…. instead of rice i’d use quinoa, instead of black beans i’d use white beans. i seasoned the beans and quinoa with nutritional yeast, onions, and some garlic. to top it off a few boca veggie chunks, an old school favorite with a more grown-up twist. i also toasted up some of my homemade cheddar-onion bread and treated myself to a free state beer. ah mondays don’t get much better than that!
