MeatlessMonday: Pumpkin & Black Quinoa Salad with Tahini Dressing

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Happy Meatless Monday guys!

The meat free recipe of the day is just irresistible! And it’s Pumpkin again! 
I’ve been making quite a few pumpkin and squash recipes lately but my family loves pumpkin!
Plus, it’s the pumpkin season, isn’t it?

The salad is made with organic black quinoa which I recently got and I really loved it. Compared to the regular type of quinoa, the black one has a nuttier flavour and kind of thicker consistency. I think I prefer this one. I added some feta cheese(love the combination of feta and pumpkin/squash), pumpkin seeds and honey tahini dressing. Yumm! I wish there were some leftovers now but as I’m writing this post, this beautiful salad is long gone!

Here’s what you need.

  1. Thanks Stephanie! I found it when I was browsing online and decided to give it a go. There's no big difference in taste, the black one is slightly nuttier than the regular one. But definitely worth trying!
