Vegan MoFo Day 1 : Quinoa Edamame Salad

I live pretty far south of the city.  Even though there aren’t any farm animals in my subdivision,we are only walking distance from cows.  Out here in the boonies there aren’t any restaurants that cater to vegan customers; so eating a vegan diet requires some home meal assembly.  I say home meal assembly rather than home cooking because I’m more inclined to piece a meal together than cook one from scratch.  High protein salads like this one are really quick and perfect for lunch or dinner.


2 C cooked quinoa
2 C diced cucumbers
1 C halved cherry tomatoes
1 C grilled onions
1/3 C red wine vinegar
2 Tbs olive oil
1.5 C cooked edamame
10 sliced green olives



  1. This looks awesome! I make the vegan yum yum quinoa chickpea artichoke salad all the time but with my own variations. Literally, all the time. I will have to add this into the rotation!

    Happy MoFo!

  2. Yummers! I like to piece together meals too. I work from home, so it basically is whatever is in the fridge at the time. Edamame is an A+ addition!

  3. Artichoke salad sounds like a winner. I’ll be checking Vegan Food Rocks for the variations.

  4. Thanks Angela – A Vegan MoFo Board is a great idea – can’t wait to check out your pins.
