Chilled Bok Choy, Black Bean Salad

For dinner today, I whipped up some quinoa, black beans, and chopped vegetables. I was in sort of a laid-back mood so I really liked that this recipe was easy to make and hearty – all you have to do is chop everything together, cook the quinoa in some water, throw in your blend of spices, and mix together! My choices of spices were simple too, which was perfect! The salad came out crunchy and full of flavors like turmeric, onions, and lime. You can even add in some salad dressing like vinaigrette if you wish and you’ll have yourself a tasty side dish or main entree that is vegan and full of protein.
