Meatless Monday and Passover

Now that we don’t cook meat at home, every night is really Meatless Monday.  However, during Passover, this is proving to be more difficult, given our additional, week-long dietary restrictions.  Luckily, thanks to quinoa, there seem to be so many more options to enjoy!  I first saw this Mango Blueberry Quinoa Salad on Pinterest, and with all the colors in the dish – I was intrigued to try.  Our blueberries ended up being rotten, so I made a quick switch with strawberries, and the final product was refreshing and filling – definitely a keeper in my recipe file.  Thanks, Veggie Belly for a great recipe.

Some tips

  • The dressing makes about 4 tbsp, so 2 tbsp is half
  • If not using 2nd half of dressing, just use 5 basil leaves
  • Quinoa needs to be rinsed first, otherwise it tastes bitter cooked
