What You'll Need
  • 1 cup great white north beans
  • 1 cup kidney beans
  • 1.5 cups cooked quinoa (according to package instructions)
  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup green peas (I used frozen, simply lay out on a towel to thaw 10-15 mins beforehand).
  • ½ cup greens (I used kale and some mixed greens)
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbs. feta
Instructions
  1. First, cook the quinoa according to package instructions (about 15-20 mins)
  2. Once cooked, place in the fridge to chill.
  3. In the mean time, rinse the beans and set aside.
  4. Once the quinoa is cooled, prepare two large mason jars (I used 2 spaghetti sauce jars) and pour about ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar into each along with 1 tbs of olive oil (again, into each container).
  5. Add the beans, then top with the cooled quinoa (be sure to split evenly between the two jars).
  6. Sprinkle the cucumber over the quinoa, then add the peas.
  7. Top with red onion then the mixed greens and last, sprinkle on the feta cheese.
  8. Seal and keep in the fridge overnight, or serve immediately!
