Sweet Quinoa Salad with Oranges, Dates, Beets & Pomegranate

Sweet Quinoa SaladThis Sweet Quinoa Salad with Oranges, Dates, Beets and Pomegranate lives up to it’s name. It’s very sweet with the natural sugars from the fruit and beets, but the quinoa loads it up with 8 grams of protein per serving.

Amelia and I love colorful dishes, and they don’t get much more colorful than this one! It’s great as a side salad with your Vegan Black Bean Burgers or as a stand-alone lunch dish.

If you take this to work for lunch, your co-workers are guaranteed to take notice! They’ll wonder what the crazy vegan is eating now with a subconscious feeling that they’re missing out! Print out the recipe and take it with you so you can just hand it to them without saying a word!

Lentil Stew w/ Quinoa and Kale

Lentil StewThis Lentil Stew w/ Quinoa and Kale is delicious, filling and very nutritious. Lentils and quinoa are both loaded with protein, giving this recipe 22 grams of it, but the nutritional value doesn’t stop there. Combined with all the other veggies, you get 24 grams of fiber, 544% RDV of Vitamin A, 289% Vitamin C, 24% Calcium and 44% Iron.

Lentils are a new addition to our kitchen. We always cooked with your typical beans: white, black, kidney, etc. But since we’ve discovered lentils, we look for recipes to use them.

Lentils are member of the legume family, but they’re milder than other beans, they cook faster and they absorb the flavors of your dish better. Plus, they’re loaded with fiber but have only 230 calories for one cup of cooked lentils. All of these wonderful benefits make them a great ingredient for your weight loss goals.

If you decide you like lentils as much as we do, you might enjoy our Lentil Hummus with Roasted Garlic or our Vegan Lentil Burger.
