Beetroot, lentil, quinoa and mint salad 🌱

Good evening! yes, I’m back, with a recipe to make you feel less guilty about the last one I shared with you. This salad is inspired by a salad I’ve eaten at M&S, it was ages ago but the memory stays with me till this day. It was soo delicious, very unique flavours, but all I remember was my hunger was satisfied and I had so much energy. Therefore, this salad is most suitable for days when you’re tired, you feel drained or you’re under the weather, trust me it will give you such a boost. All the healthy fibre and protein. You can’t go wrong.
