Mango Quinoa Avocado bean salad

Avocado salad1

About:

Today, I want to share an exciting salad with you that is incredibly refreshing and of course, nourishing – Mango Quinoa bean Salad. Wonderful lunch salad full of flavor texture and healthful goodness.

This recipe is super easy to make!  The most time-consuming part is chopping all the veggies, that’s always a lot of fun…even therapeutic 😉

Yields: 2-3 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Quinoa-1 cup (washed and rinsed thoroughly)
  • Rose coco beans-1 can (rinsed and drained)
  • Chopped onion-1 medium
  • Chopped toamtoes-1 medium
  • Chopped bell peppers-1/2
  • Avocado- 1 (peeled, seeded and chopped)
  • Grated raw green mango-1 small (2-3 tbsp)
  • Olive oil-1 tbsp
  • Ground cumin-1 tsp
  • Cayenne pepper-1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Crushed garlic-2 cloves
  • Water-2 cups
  • Salt- to taste
  • rockets-for serving

Procedure:

  • Bring water to a boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Stir in rinsed and drained quinoa. Reduce heat cover pan. Simmer 12-15minutes or until water is absorbed.
  • (Quinoa can be used warm or cold- for cold quinoa can be cooked ahead and use in the salad or use warm quinoa itself in the salad)
  • Now in a mixing bowl  add  rose coco beans, tomato, bell peppers, avocado, grated mango, olive oil, salt, ground cumin, cayenne peppers mix well.
  • Add cooked quinoa , rockets stir gently and serve.

Note:

  • I used raw green mango which helps to give tangy taste and flavour-alternatively lime/lemon juice can be used.
  • Spices can be personalised as per the taste.
  • Vegetables combo can be personalised as per the taste
