Choose this lime-basil-infused salad—with chunks of beta-carotene-laced sweet potatoes and tender, high-fiber, protein-rich black soybeans—for a healthy meatless main dish you can have on the table in 15 minutes.
1/4 cup fat-free lime-basil vinaigrette (such as Maple Grove Farms)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added black soybeans (such as Eden Organic), rinsed and drained
2 cups baby spinach
5 tablespoons crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
3 green onions, chopped
How to Make It
Bring 3/4 cup water to boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
While couscous stands, place sweet potato on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave at HIGH 5 minutes or until tender.
Combine vinaigrette, pepper, and salt in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add couscous, sweet potato, soybeans, and spinach; toss gently to coat. Top each serving with cheese; sprinkle evenly with onions.
