Quinoa Salad with Mango and Black beans
this flavorful and healthful (and colorful) salad comes together very quickly. i got it out of the veganomicon cookbook, but you can also find it online here. i used half regular and half red quinoa.
while eating this salad, i got the same sensation as when i eat kale. like my body is thanking me for the nutrients and saying it's glad i didn't give it chili mac and french fries again.
there's a little asian grocery store about 2 miles away, and i got the green onions and cilantro (as well as some mint, basil and dill and a honking big piece of ginger) for DIRT CHEAP. probably about 1/2 less than the grocery store. henceforth, i plan on getting all my herbs & stuff there.
