A crisp, protein-rich salad with fresh fruit and vegetables is ideal, especially in the winter months, to provide you with vitamins and to optimize your own health and fitness. Proteins are essential for a balanced diet, but do they also exist in plants? Yes: Golden Chlorella contains 30% protein, Golden Bean 85% and Golden Pea 80%.
Ingredients for the vinaigrette:
Cook quinoa according to package directions and allow to cool. Place the green beans in boiling salted water and cook for 5 minutes. The beans should remain slightly al dente to add texture to the salad. Peel the blood oranges, cut into pieces and fillet. Squeeze the remaining halves and set the juice aside.
To prepare the vinaigrette, combine the oil, orange juice, golden chlorella, and vinegar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the vinaigrette to the bean and quinoa mixture and add the chopped parsley. Serve the whole dish on a plate with the orange wedges, feta and spring onions.
