Step 1In large, non-stick skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper. Sauté 5 minutes or until onions begin to brown on edges, stirring occasionally. Add water and quinoa. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat, cover and cook on medium-low for 12 minutes or until water is absorbed.
Step 2Remove from heat, stir in beans, walnuts, chili powder, feta, cilantro and garlic. Cover and let stand 2 minutes to heat through and absorb flavours.
For a vegetarian version, replace feta with vegan cheese or tofu.
Leftovers? Add quartered grape tomatoes, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a bit more cilantro for an easy meatless entrée.
