This is the quinoa bean salad. Picture props go out to my wonderful and talented sister-in-law Esther Battisti. She is participating on this journey with me and is a SUPER talented photographer. She’s an awesome mom as well to two beautiful daughters 🙂 By the way, I had a lot of fun making this. It was super yummy too! It tastes almost like pasta salad. Enjoy!
