Vegan Quinoa Salad Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup quinoa
  2. 1 1/2 cups water
  3. 14 mint leaves, minced
  4. 1 tablespoon capers, minced
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed orange juice
  6. 1/4 cup olive oil
  7. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  8. 1 mango, peeled and diced into 1/4-inch chunks
  9. 1/2 cup roasted red peppers
  10. 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  11. 1 cup packed greens (spinach, arugula, mixed lettuces), chopped

Directions

  1. Place the quinoa and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan, and cook until all the liquid is absorbed, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. While the quinoa cooks, make the vinaigrette: in a large bowl, whisk together the mint, capers, orange juice, and olive oil. Season well with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. When the quinoa is cooked, fluff with a fork and transfer to the bowl with the vinaigrette. Stir well to combine.
  4. Add the mango, red peppers, jalapeño, and greens. Stir until the vegetables are incorporated into the quinoa. Chill until ready to serve.

Serves 4-6.
