Prep 10 min ∙ Cook 15 min ∙ Makes 4 ∙ Difficulty Easy

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 sliced red onion
  • Pomegranate seeds (you can also use raisins or dried cranberries)
  • 300g quinoa, rinsed
  • 50g toasted flaked almonds
  • 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  • handful parsley, roughly chopped
  • juice ½ lemon
  • Add your favorite greens like kale, spinach or arugula

Directions

Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the spices, then fry for a min or so until fragrant. Add the quinoa, then fry for a further min until you can hear gentle popping sounds. Stir in 600ml boiling water, then gently simmer for 10-15 mins until the water has evaporated and the quinoa grains have a white ‘halo’ around them. Allow to cool slightly, then stir through the other ingredients. Serve warm or cold.
