This is one of the easiest recipes you can make. No kitchen even required! I usually buy the Seeds of Change brand precooked grains. However, I also recommend home cooking your grains and beans and keeping them stored in the freezer until you want to use them. This saves money, and makes your easy vegan meals a little more nutritious because you can control any added salt and oil.
Serves: 2-4
  • 1 package pre-cooked quinoa, heated in microwave according to package instructions
  • 1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
  • ½ ripe mango, diced
  • ½ shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice, about 2 limes + more to garnish
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ bag pre-washed mixed greens
  • salt to taste
  • ¼ toasted pepitas
  • chili flakes for garnish
  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the quinoa, black beans, diced mango, shallot, cumin, fennel seeds, and lime. Stir well.
  2. Then add the mixed greens and olive oil. Use salad tongs or forks to mix the ingredients together.
  3. Season to taste with salt, red chili flakes, and more lime juice.
