A meatless but filling and satisfying dish for lunch or dinner can be yours for a mere 15 minutes of cooking time and an additional 5 minutes to prepare some chopped veggies and a dressing. So tops….. 20 total minutes for serious deliciousness!. Quinoa mixed with some wonderful veggies and combined with an even yummier dressing is sure to be a hit when you have company or to bring to any get together! This is the perfect allergy friendly dish! Gluten free, grain free, sugar free, dairy free, soy free, nut free. Vegan, vegetarian . . . any more we're missing?

Not crazy about black beans? Use another bean you like for protein. Not crazy about the red bell pepper? Use tomato. Not crazy about mango? Oh sorry that is something you cannot change in this recipe, it is needed !! It makes everything naturally sweet and is super healthy too!


1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed and drained
1 can (15 ounce) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cucumber, chopped
1 mango, peeled and chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
1/4 -1/2cup Low Fat Zesty Orange Dressing

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)



1. Place the quinoa in a medium size sauce pan and add 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes until all water is absorbed. Set aside to cool.

2. In a large bowl place all chopped vegetables, add quinoa. In a small bowl mix your dressing ingredients. Pour your dressing over the quinoa and vegetables and mix in the chopped fresh cilantro. Season with salt and pepper if desired.

3. Enjoy chilled or warm.
