  • 6 c. of cooked Quinoa (1,104 g) use the frozen type when in a pinch!
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut aminos + more to taste (45 ml)
  • One 15 oz. can of white beans of any type drained and rinsed (I like navy, garbanzos or great northern beans)
  • 1 can of mandarin oranges
  • one ripe Avocado
  • optional Topping: chopped almonds or other nuts and / or dried cranberries


  • Prepare quinoa according to package directions.  FYI - 2 cups of dry/raw quinoa makes about 6 cups of cooked quinoa when prepared using 4 cups of water or vegetable broth!
  • Once slightly cooled, place the 6 cups of cooked quinoa in a mixing bowl and gently toss together with the coconut aminos.
  • Then, assemble!  Start with the quinoa, add the desired amount of beans and oranges, then finally top with avocado. Add salt and pepper to taste.


  • Add some chopped almonds or other nuts if you're feeling the need for a little crunch.
  • Add some dried cranberries if you feel like it, too!
  • I find that this recipe works best with quinoa, but feel free to substitute with your grain of choice.
