quinoa bean salad
preparation time: 10 minutes
ingredients (for two servings):
  • 1 carrot, peeled and rasped
  • 1 bell pepper, washed and chopped
  • 1/3 cucumber, washed and chopped
  • handful salad leaves or arugula, washed and chopped
  • 100gram kidney beans
  • 150gram quinoa (cooked)
  • 2tbs apple vinegar
  • 2tbs lemon juice
  • 2tbs Tahin (sesame mush)
  • pinch of salt, pepper, chili
optional topping: handful linseeds
Mix apple vinegar, lemon juice, Tahin and the spices in a bowl and stir in all remaining ingredients until well combined. Serve in two bowls, optionally topped with linseeds or pumpkin seeds.
Reasons why I love to prepare this salad:
  • rich in proteins thanks to quinoa and beans
  • rich in unsaturated fatty acids thanks to Tahin
  • fresh and healthy thanks to raw veggies and salad
  • very easy, prepared in just 10 minutes
