We are huge fans of quinoa. The texture and consisteny provides the comfort of a starchy carb like rice or couscous, but in reality it's a seed that happens to be a complete protein. Quinoa is a big source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. This salad is a healthy, satisfying bowl of energy. It's a great lunch option, especially because it travels well.

  • 1/2 cup avocado, chopped
  • 1/2 cup black beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup Himalania shelled hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup Nature's All Foods freeze-dried corn
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • S + P to taste

Instructions:

  1. Add quinoa to a pot with 2 cups of water over medium-high heat
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes until water is absorbed
  3. In a bowl, add: tomatoes, red onion, avocado, black beans, hemp seeds and freeze-dried corn
  4. In another bowl, add: olive oil, lemon juice and S + P then mix
