Quinoa Bean Salad

Corn and Black Bean Quinoa Salad

This salad is similar to a regular beans sald but I added cooked quinoa to maximize the nutritional value, you could also add sprouted quinoa.

1 cup water

1/2 cup quinoa

1 cup chickpeas

1 cup kidney beans

1 cup sliced green bell pepper

1/2 cup of corn

1/2 cup sliced avacado

1 cup diced celery

3/4 cup chopped red onion

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tsp minced fresh garlic

2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Bring water to a boil, add quinoa, cover and simmer for 10 miuntes. Turn heat off allow quinoa to site for another 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and allow to cool.

Combine quinoa, chickpeas, kidney beans, green pepper, celery, corn and avacado and onion in a large bowl.

In a small bowl mix vinegar, oil, garlic, oregano and pepper until well blended. Add as dressing to the salad, mix well and serve immediately!

Blessings on your day!
