How to cook
Prepare the quinoa
  • Place quinoa in a medium sauce pan with 1 cup of water, bring water to boil, reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Add more water if needed. Fluff with a fork and leave covered to cool.
Prepare 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 salad.
  • Deseed the pomegranate and add the seeds and roughly chopped almonds.
Prepare 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 cooked quinoa, broccoli and dressing and toss through the salad.
