  1. Cook grains of choice.

  2. Wash, chop and prepare all the vegetables while the grains are cooking, set aside.

  3. Add all dressing ingredients to a food processor, or high speed blender, until a uniform consistency is achieved. Set aside.

  4. When ready to eat, mix vegetables, grains, and dressing. Serve immediately.

  5. Enjoy!


* You could sub the quinoa for any of your favourite grains, pulses or legumes for a heartier meal.

** If mangoes aren't in season or you are having trouble sourcing them, you could substitute any of your favourite fresh fruits such as sliced strawberries or oranges.

*** A classic vinaigrette would also be delicious as a substitute for the mango and coriander dressing. You could also play around with a creamy nut-butter dressing instead (such as tahini - YUM!).
