mango blackbean quinoa salad

From Veganomicon very easy recipe. Quinoa is an ancient grain first cultivated by the Inca hundreds of years ago. It has highest amount of protein than any other gain and is a complete protein. It contains all 8 essential amino acids. The grains are round and after cooking the grem seperates and a pretty translucent ring forms around each one.

Awesome. I have Veganomicon (actually got it for free from the Canadian publisher!) but haven't come across this recipe yet - love quinoa and mangos... have to put this on the "to do" list!
