Vegan Mexican Quinoa

A few months ago, I made a Mediterranean Quinoa bowl seen here.  I wanted to change it up a bit and decided to make a Mexican Quinoa bowl.
Here is the recipe:

1 cup quinoa
1 red bell pepper
1/4 onion
2 zucchini
2 cups kale
1 can black beans
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tbsp olive oil
cayenne pepper
2 limes
avocado (optional)

While the quinoa is cooking, mince the garlic and let it simmer with olive oil for 2 minutes on medium low heat.  Then add diced zucchini, kale, cumin and cayenne pepper (to season) and sautee for 5 minutes.  Add in the rinsed black beans and cook for 5 more minutes.  Meanwhile, cut red bell pepper and onion to put in the food processor to make a sauce.  Squeeze limes on the veggie mix, then mix quinoa, veggies and sauce together well.  Top with avocado and ENJOY!
