Savory Quinoa, White Bean, and Tomato Salad:

For how delectable this salad is, you'd think it would be hard to make. However, if your quinoa is already cooked, this takes less than 10 minutes to make. There's something about the way soy sauce goes with quinoa. The nuttiness of the quinoa marries perfectly with the salty soy sauce, and the small white beans and diced tomatoes really pull this salad together.


1 cup uncooked quinoa (or about 2 cups cooked)
1 1/4 cups small white beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup tomatoes, diced
1 tbsp. soy sauce (or to taste)
2 tsp. olive oil 
1/4 tsp. salt (or to taste)

Serves 4.
Total Cook Time: 25 minutes.


1. If you haven't cooked the quinoa, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the quinoa, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

2. Once the quinoa is cooked, mix in the small white beans and tomatoes. Add in the soy sauce, olive oil, and salt. Toss to coat. Serve warm or cold over a bed of  greens or with a side of steamed broccoli.


  1. This looks delicious and I just happen to have cooked quinoa in the fridge. I usually go with Mexican spices but I bet this would be good too. :)

    1. I've never thought of using Mexican spices. I'm going to have to try that the next time that I make quinoa, and yes, the soy just goes so well with it!

  2. Mmm, yum! I love quinoa in just about any form and white beans and I are firm friends - so this is a great match :)
