Although it's supposed to be a side dish, I like having this for a quick meal when I don't feel like doing a lot of prep work. It's very filling, and with the beans and veggies in addition to the rice and quinoa it's a fairly well-rounded dish.
Making it with vegetable broth or throwing in a bouillon cube adds some nice additional flavour, though it's delicious without.
