“A quick and easy meal with protein from the black beans and couscous. You will also love the sweet pineapple with the spice from the taco seasoning. Depending on how much juice was with your pineapple, you may need to add more water to the couscous if it looks like it needs it.”

Directions

  1. Combine 1/2 cup water and reserved pineapple juice in a saucepan over medium-low heat; bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Stir couscous into the liquid to coat. Set aside until the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 5 minutes; fluff with a fork. Divide onto 2 plates.
  2. Stir pineapple chunks and black beans together in a skillet over medium heat. Mix 1/3 cup warm water and taco seasoning mix in a small bowl; pour over the black bean mixture. Cook and stir the mixture until hot, 5 to 7 minutes. Spoon over couscous to serve.

This was surprisingly good given the minimal effort involved. I used quinoa instead of couscous, cooked in a combination of pineapple juice and vegetable broth. I also used home-blended taco seasoning. My husband didn't love it, but I was happy to bring it for my lunch.

Although the picture is not too appealing, I like the flavors of this recipe, the protein from the black beans and the tang of the pineapple. I added a can of chick peas as well as the black beans, and I had to add more taco seasoning, liquid and salt because of that. I mixed it all together rather than putting the beans/pineapple on top, so that it was easy to divide up and refrigerate for later. Good for lunch with a piece of fruit on the side.
