Bean Salad Quinoa

If you haven’t tried quinoa before, what are you waiting on?

Not only is it a whole-grain but it’s full of protein, fiber and iron.  It is so versatile and takes on the flavors of the ingredients you add to the mix.

In this salad, cooked quinoa is combined with beans, red onion and tomatoes.  The dressing is a simple mix of red wine vinegar, EVOO and salt.

Couldn’t be simpler.

I served the quinoa salad with steamed broccoli for a super simple dinner that was on the table in 20 minutes.

Another great thing about this recipe – it’s perfect to pack up for lunch.  I added a scoop over some spinach and it was delicious.  Another day, I warmed up the quinoa and added an egg over-easy on top.

Simple, filling and healthy.

My kind of dinner when I’m in a hurry.
