Ingredients

Equipment
  • Saucepan
  • Sieve
  • Chopping board
  • Knife
  • Serving bowl
  • Mixing bowl
  • Serving jug

Method
  1. Rinse the quinoa, add to a saucepan with the cold water and bring to the boil; reduce to a simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until tender and the water has been absorbed.  Once cooked drain into a sieve and leave to cool over a bowl, remember to fork through a couple of times to avoid it sticking together.

  2. Whilst the quinoa is cooling prepare all the salad ingredients.

  3. In a frying pan toast a handful of the nut and seed salad topper for a couple of minutes on a medium heat, turning them a few times being careful not to burn them.  Once ready set aside.

  4. Meanwhile make the dressing - add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk well together.

  5. Once the quinoa is cool add to your serving dish. Mix through the salad ingredients, a handful of the nut and seed salad topper and the salad leaves. 

  6. Sprinkle the toasted seeds and poppy seeds over the top of the salad and drizzle over the dressing.

  7. Eat & enjoy!
