Black Bean Mango Quinoa

photo 1 copyI love this meal. The recipe originated from one of my fave cookbooks, Veganamicon. I honestly haven't looked at the recipe in years, so I have no idea what I added and what was originally in the dish, but what I do know is that it's freaking delish!!! Perfect for an end of summer bbq!!! I would love some one to make this for me right now!!!! Like right this second!!! Hello!? Is there anybody out there that wants to cook for a massive pregnant lady!? No… C'est la vie. Enjoy! photo 2Feeds a whole bunch a folks
