I made this one night knowing I’d be too busy to shop and cook for a party we were attending the next day. I just used ingredients on hand and it turned out to be delicious! It was a hit at the party -so it’s now a favorite request.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ bunch of kale leaves
  • ½ cup of orange juice
  • 1-2 Tbsp. of pistachio, walnut or olive oil
  • 1 mango cut into small cubes
  • 1/3 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 2 cups of cooked quinoa
  • 1/3 cup purple onion
  •  2 tsp. of Bragg liquid amino acid (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar

Directions:

  1. Soak kale in orange juice and oil over night in its own container.
  2. Cook quinoa according to package.
  3. Chop the mango and purple onion and set aside separately.
  4. Rinse and drain the black beans.
  5. While the quinoa is hot, mix in black beans, soy sauce, purple onion and balsamic vinegar. Let this mixture chill over night.
  6. The next day mix all ingredients together, adding in mango last.
