Black Bean Quinoa Salad
Serves 2
One of my all-time favourite salads, it’s super delicious and super nutritious… Quinoa is a nutritional powerhouse touted to contain all nine essential amino acids along with fibre, protein and iron rich black beans; just 1 cup of this salad will provide over a third of your daily protein, fibre and iron requirements
