Last night, I decided to make quinoa salad, as part of my continued effort to develop skills other than pirouetting while I am on my ballet hiatus. I didn’t have a particular line up of ingredients in mind, just a plastic cup full of uncooked quinoa and a fridge full of veggies! So I got to work, and here’s what I came up with…
1 cup of quinoa (I used this cooking tutorial)
1/3 cup shredded carrots
1/2 can black beans
1/2 chopped red bell pepper
1/2 chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped baby spinach
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
For the dressing, I used this amazing recipe (also where the inspiration for the salad itself came from), omitting the ginger and using agave instead of honey. This dressing is AMAZING you guys, and I’m not the biggest fan of peanuts or anything remotely tahini-flavored. This quinoa came out delicious! Can’t wait to eat a little bowl of it for lunch today!
What is the recipe for the dressing you used???
