Necessity is the mother of invention, especially in the kitchen, which is how I ended up creating this killer quinoa salad recipe on a whim last week. It’s simple, quick, healthy, and hearty. The quinoa and beans add great protein, meanwhile the homemade dressing offers flavor and richness. You will love it.
- First, cook 1 cup of quinoa as directed.
- Next, while it’s simmering, whip up this amazing lemon tahini dressing from Oh She Glows, a topnotch vegan blog.
- In a large bowl, toss together arugula, grape tomatoes (halved), and 1 can of rinsed white cannellini beans, along with dressing.
- Lastly, add the quinoa, more dressing to taste, and serve warm, or allow quinoa to cool before combining with produce, chilling in the refrigerator, and serving cold. Both are fantastic.
This is perfect for lunch-on-the-go, a side dish for parties, or a light dinner. Enjoy!
