Mixed Bean Quinoa Salad with Spinach and Tomatoes

There’s one thing I’m learning in my Daniel Fast, is that I am spending A LOT of time preparing food. It’s really nice to have something that comes together quickly and is still delicious.

Bean Quinoa Salad with Spinach and Tomatoes

1 15 oz. can mixed beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 – 2 c. cooked quinoa
1 cup spinach, sliced into strips
2 roma tomatoes, cubed
1 – 2 slices red onion, minced
Handful of fresh parsley, sliced
Olive Oil
Lemon Juice
Fresh Ground Pepper
Kosher or Sea Salt

  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the beans, quinoa, spinach, tomatoes, red onion and parsley.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt to taste and  liberally with fresh pepper.
  3. Toss salad until evenly covered.
  4. Enjoy!
