Vegans and vegetarians generally rely on legumes and whole grains to supply much needed protein and amino acids, but omnivores, you can be satisfied too.  A whole legume such as a bean or lentil combined with a whole grain such as quinoa, oats rice or corn compliment each other creating a perfect amino acid profile for substantial protein just like an animal meat.  This bean salad is a great option for a healthy vegan side dish or meal.  I also like to add some fresh chopped arugula or chard for extra greens.
