Ingredients
Method
 
  • 8oz quinoa - you can use either the regular white variety, or the slightly harder to find red. The red has a nuttier taste.
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tblsp of flax seed oil
  • A sprinkle of ground turmeric
  • 1/2 a red pepper seeded and chopped
  • 4 mushrooms chopped into small pieces
  • A sprinkle of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper - to taste
Cook the quinoa in enough water to cover it in a saucepan with a lid on medium heat for approx 10 mins. It is cooked when the seeds open up and soften. Then drain using a wire sieve and run-through with cold water. Leave it in the sieve to drain. Allow to completely cool. Then tip it into a small mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir well with a metal spoon, cover and pop in the fridge for say 1/2 an hour so all those flavours get to mix. Then serve and enjoy.

The whole thing will take you 20 mins to prepare and cook, plus another hour or so in the fridge. Although I have to say, I start eating it right away!. It's great to take on it's own to work for lunch, or as a snack on it's own. Also use as a side dish.
