Quinoa, Mango and Black Bean Salad

Another food and recipe I’ve aquired via Kris.

I’d never heard of, our tasted quinoa. It was really easy to make and has a interesting taste and texture not unlike couscous. Its also very versatile and i’m already thinking of other things i could make it with.
This salad was really good, I tested it on my mum and dad, mum liked it and well dad wasnt too sure (lol)… although he did clean his plate?

Quinoa, Mango and Black Bean Salad 

Wiki says “Quinoa has a delightful characteristic that is all it’s own: as it cooks, the outer germ around each grain twists outward forming a little white, spiral tail, which is attached to the kernel. The grain itself is soft and delicate and the tail is crunchy which creates an interesting texture combination and pleasant “crunch” when eating the grain. Quinoa has a fluffy consistency and a mild, delicate, slightly nutty flavor”
