Organic Tri Colore Quinoa Grain FairTrade, ingredients: Quinoa* (70%), red quinoa* (15%), black quinoa* (15%)
*certified organic ingredients
Summary: Replace the couscous with quinoa and you get a protein packed and low GI tabouleh, but still as delicious as the original. Use red, black or tricolour quinoa for a really pretty looking dish.
Summary: This simple quinoa dish, with plump and sweet dried fruits, makes a great base for a salad or a lovely side for a Christmas meal.
Summary: This salad is really super quick and easy to make, and yet very sustaining. Quinoa and Avocados are traditional foods in Peru ; they go really well together and are both highly nutritious. Quinoa is high in fibre and in excellent quality protein. Avocados are amongst the best foods on the planet, thanks to their high content in healthy fats, fats that heal. Spinach is really high in good quality protein too and because it has a balanced amino-acid profile, it improves the protein profile of any meal.
This really is a super salad !
Please feel free to add other Spring favourites like blanched broad beans or sliced raw radishes, or substitute lamb's lettuce for the baby spinach.
It takes only 5 extra minutes to make the quinoa crunchies, and they are well worth it. Make them right before serving the salad for a lovely temperature and texture contrast.
Serves 1 hungry person as a main, or 2 normal people as a starter.
