How to cook

Prepare the quinoa

  • Place quinoa in a medium sauce pan with 1 cup of water then bring the water to boil.
  • Reduce to low heat, then cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed - add more water if needed.
  • Fluff the quinoa with a fork and leave covered to cool.

Prepare the salad vegetables

  • Chop the broccoli into small florets and steam lightly over boiling water in a steaming basket for 3-4 minutes - only partially steam to keep as many good nutrients as possible.
  • Wash and chop spinach and parsley and add to a large salad bowl.
  • Add diced red onions, chilies, cherry tomatoes and red bell bell pepper to the salad bowl.
  • Deseed the pomegranate and add the seeds and roughly chopped almonds to the salad bowl.

Prepare the salad dressing

  • In a small jar with a lid, add the juice of one lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper and shake well.

Assemble and serve

  • Add the cooked quinoa, broccoli and dressing to the salad bowl.
  • Toss well and serve.
