Quinoa&beans salad with maple syrup dressing/VEGAN


I have to say I really like salads and especially these ones with quinoa or couscous. This recipe is perfect as it takes only 15 minutes of your time and it’s really tasty. It’s vegan-friendly and of course gluten-free! 

Actually, this recipe was my quick Monday dinner so what I had around I used. Because I finish quite late at my work I don’t want to spend more than a few minutes in the kitchen and this recipe was just a quick idea which ended really tasty. Even I was surprised how perfect the balance of the tastes I made. 

 I am still pretty surprised about this meal as it was a spontaneous midnight cooking idea and maybe because of the energy I was feeling I just have to take a few pictures which come so beautifully. I should to called it “my surprise salad”. 🙂
