Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4

1 cup Black Quinoa
1/2 pound Yellow Wax Beans
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 whole Small Sweet Onion, Sliced
2 cloves Garlic, Minced
1 teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 teaspoons Cayenne
Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
1/4 cup Slivered Almonds, Toasted

1. Cook the quinoa in enough water until they open up like little spirals.  Add more water as needed.
