  • 1 Cup quinoa or Whole wheat Couscous, uncooked
  • 1 large Roma Tomato, roughly chopped
  • 1 navel orange, roughly chopped

  • ½ cup spinach
  • 6 ounces nonfat vanilla (low-sugar) yogurt (like Stonyfield organic or for vegan option 6 ounces of Vanilla Cultured Almond Milk)
  • 1-1/2 tbsp champagne vinegar (we used pear cranberry, which is so good we’d drink it on it’s own!
  • Salt (optional)
  1. Prepare quinoa or couscous according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile mix orange and tomato together with spinach in a medium sized bowl (large enough to hold at least 6-7 cups).
  3. When couscous is ready stir in it and the beans into the orange mixture.
  4. Whisk together champagne vinegar and yogurt.
  5. Pour over the couscous mixture and stir in. YUM! (We didn’t feel adding salt was necessary but add to taste if you desire)
