Quinoa with Black Beans

1 T. vegetable oil
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 cups water
1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
feta cheese (optional)

Heat oil in heavy medium saucepan  and add onions and red pepper; sauté until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.

Stir in chili powder, cumin, quinoa and salt. Add water; bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer until quinoa is almost tender, about 15 minutes. Add beans and 1/4 cup cilantro; cook uncovered until heated through and liquid is fully absorbed, about 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl; sprinkle with 1/4 cup cilantro and feta cheese, if desired.
