Equipment

  • Pressure cooker, rice cooker, stovetop
  • Immersion blender

Ingredients
  

  • 5 cups cooked quinoa (2 ½ cups uncooked quinoa + 5 cups water)
  • 1-1/2 cups Northern beans
  • 1/2 - 1 cup peppers, chopped (red, yellow, orange, and/or green)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered (sun-dried tomatoes are also a great option)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup cucumber, chopped (leave out seeds)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup olives, sliced

Sauce

  • 1 cup fresh basil (or 2 tablespoons basil paste)
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup nuts (any nut of choice)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (omit if doing the Daniel Fast)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • The only cooking that’s required is cooking the quinoa. Start this first (typically with 2 cups of water per cup of quinoa), and wash, chop and slice your veggies so they're ready for the cooked quinoa once it’s finished - which has a cook time of only about 20 minutes.

How To Make The Sauce

  • Mix the salad dressing ingredients with an immersion blender or small food processor and mix with salad in a large bowl.
