Simple & Protein-Packed Sprouted Black Bean Quinoa Salad: 


I am super excited to share this Simple Black Bean Quinoa Salad recipe because I got to partner with the sprouted foods company Second Spring to try out some of their amazing products.

Second Spring is family-owned and local– Ontario, Canada! They sprout a variety of high-quality grains, seeds, and beans which you purchase easily through their online shop.Husband and wife team Dale and Marianne started sprouted grains and seeds in 1985. They are now joined by the second generation of sprouters to bring you Second Spring natural food products. Founded with a deep respect for ancient food traditions, they sprout to bring you all the nutrition that grains, seeds and beans have to offer. 

Reasons to LOVE Second Spring Sprouted Quinoa: 

A couple of the reasons why I love their products is firstly, because they come from right here in Ontario, Canada and secondly because of the nutritional content of sprouted grains, beans and seeds.

Many people don’t have the time or want to put in the effort to sprout their own grains, beans and seeds but with Second Spring you don’t have to worry about that. I remember when I received my first package of quinoa from Second Spring and noticed right on the packaging that there was no pre-soaking required. This honestly made me so happy because it cut out one more step from the cooking process which I know for myself and my clients, helps encourage healthy eating and cooking.

Stay tuned for my second recipe using Second Spring products where I talk more about the benefits of sprouting!

The first recipe I created for them is a Simple Black Bean Quinoa Salad that you can eat warm or cold and makes the perfect side dish with many meals! Make a big batch and bring to a family BBQ or divide into mason jars and pack it as part of your lunch for the week. The black beans and quinoa in this recipe mean that you will be getting adequate protein and healthy carbohydrates!
