For a change from rice side dishes, try slow-cooked quinoa with spicy beans and roasted peppers to add southwestern flavor to your meal.
Substitute sun-dried tomatoes for the roasted red bell peppers. Choose sun-dried tomatoes in oil and herbs for even more flavor. Drain and chop enough to get 3/4 cup. Any leftover oil from the tomatoes can be the start to a tasty salad dressing. Simply follow a recipe for a vinaigrette, using the leftover oil for the oil called for in the recipe.
