Curry Quinoa & Sprouted Bean Salad

Looking for recipes to use up those Costco sized bags of Quinoa and Sprouted Bean Trio?

I am!  And my friend Lori raved about a salad she made using quinoa, so I thought I’d give it a try!
I’ve made it twice now, and it’s got our family stamp of approval!  
You can eat this as a meal in itself, or as a side dish.  
Delish, versatile, and so healthy!
2 cups cooked quinoa
1-2 cups cooked sprouted beans (or you can use chickpeas, blackbeans…)
1 small onion, chopped small
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 carrot, grated
1/2 cup chopped sugar snap peas
2 tsp olive oil
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp curry powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
salt & pepper to taste
  • Combine all ingredients.  
  • Let rest for at least 15 minutes.  Then taste test.  Adjust seasonings as you wish.
Tip!
  • Cook your beans and quinoa in vegetable broth or chicken stock for added nutrition and flavour.
  • We have found the sprouted beans to be quite deadly, if you know what I mean.  So because of this, I left it up to you to decide how much or how little you want to add.  I use 1 heaping cup.
  • You can use any vegetables you want in it!  For some variation try diced cooked sweet potato, corn, purple cabbage, grated zucchini, chopped garlic… The possibilities are endless!

  2. It looks delicious and so healthful. I’ve got myself a box of quinoa but haven’t cook it yet! I’m going to give this a try. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I’m going to have to get me some of that at Costco! I make regular ol’ quinoa and no one touches it :( This looks MUCH more tasty!

  4. I need to try this!! I’ve only had quinoa salad once before and it was so good – I love the idea of adding a curry flavor to it!
