This is great vegetarian dish using the complete protein from the quinoa and a further protein boost from the bean sauce! Lets keep in mind it tastes amazing too!! Enjoy



  1.  Preheat a small fry pan on medium heat. Add the butter and onions and sauté, stirring occasionally until the onions are lightly browned.
  2.  Add the garlic and cumin and sauté for 1 minute longer.
  3.  Transfer the contents from the pan to a food processor or blender and add the yogurt and refried beans.
  4.  Puree until relatively smooth. Alternatively, you could stir the ingredients together in a mixing bowl if you like the texture of the onions and garlic.
  5.  Now transfer to a mixing bowl if you were using the food processor/blender and add salt and pepper until it tastes good for you. Next add the green onions, stir and its ready to serve warm or cold.
  6.  Pour a healthy serving on top of quinoa, brown rice, lentils or another favourite whole grain/legume.


  •  Use refried black beans for different colour and flavour.
