Quinoa & Candy Potato Salad w/ Turmeric Tahini Dressing — Weblog

This does require a wee little bit of prep, so if you’re a salad particular person, I counsel doubling it and having the elements readily available to make this salad a couple of instances all through the week. Every thing saves effectively. I’ve added grilled hen or salmon or toss additional agency squares of tofu in oil and coconut aminos and roasting it at a excessive warmth till golden, about 20 minutes, for a veg pleasant topping. Nevertheless, it doesn’t want any of those add-ins, it’s loads satisfying as is!
