Looking for a new way to use quinoa? This recipe for Black Bean Quinoa Salad knocks it out of the park.... and it's vegan friendly!
I've partnered with Mirum Shopper to share this Black Bean and Quinoa Salad Recipe.
With our New Year resolutions still in full swing, we've been trying to eat better foods with better quality ingredients. This isn't always the easiest with two toddlers who want all the processed foods we can fit into our grocery cart. Fortunately, they're good about eating the meals I prepare, so I try to use the best ingredients possible. That's why I was thrilled to see new Hellmann's Vegan on the shelves at our local Target.
Now, I can make my family's favorite meals using Hellmann's certified vegan dressing. It's got the same rich, creamy taste that you'd expect from Hellmann's, but it’s eggless, cholesterol-free with only 10g of fat per serving, and made with non-GMO sourced ingredients. No matter what you're making - from potato salad to a salty sweet sandwich to the best chocolate raspberry cake you've ever had (and yes, mayo is the secret ingredient), you'll love this new vegan option that tastes divine.
If you want to increase your family's wholesome ingredient and fiber intake, check out this recipe for black bean quinoa salad. I'm sure you've seen the quinoa craze lately, and there's good reason for it. It's gluten-free, high in protein and contains all nine essential amino acids.
My daughter absolutely loves corn and avocado so I knew this dish would be a hit with her. It's perfect for lunch or a side dish and she gobbles it up!
