Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa

Made this for dinner tonight. I really like quinoa. It has a great texture and flavor; some people substitute couscous for it in recipes but I think quinoa's flavor is way more interesting. I used yellow tomatoes and skipped the cilantro because we didn't have any. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I used dried black beans instead of canned but, surprisingly, I actually like canned better. This was a great, healthy meal. It makes enough for two for dinner plus enough leftovers for a lunch.
