So I stole this from the famous vegan recipe website Post Punk Kitchen of Isa Chandra Moskowitz.
Really really good.
I’ll just link you to this site for ingredients and preparation, that way I don’t have to type it all up myself: http://www.theppk.com/2010/04/quinoa-salad-with-black-beans-mango/
When I made it the only deviation I had from the recipe was the lack of mango. This occurred because I had forgotten that my sister had eaten the last one yesterday. Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits and would have added a great tropically sweet flavor to the salad.
Alas. It was still, as I said, par excellence. Very fresh and summery, and keeps well over long periods of time.
I’m super into finding complementary beverages for these meals. In this case, I tried out a concoction of carrot juice and orange juice, which complemented the freshness and tartness of the salad quite nicely, I think. Here are the two juices and their baby, bathed in an orange glow:
As always, enjoy enjoy!
