Throw In A Bowl Quinoa

I call this my 'throw in a bowl quinoa' dish quite simply because it can have just about anything you like in it - Whatever vegetables you fancy or whatever you can find in your cupboards or fridge. Here is my take on it (there will most likely be plenty of posts like this to come but with different ingredients) :

What you'll need:

-Red & white quinoa
-Mange tout
-Cherry tomatoes
-Red pepper
-Pine nuts

How to make:

This dish is really easy to make - start by making the quinoa. Bring the quinoa and liquid to the boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes should be about right. I sauteed the mushrooms, boiled some asparagus and the mange tout for a few minutes and chopped up some red pepper and cherry tomatoes and simply stirred them into the cooked quinoa. Slice up some avocado, sprinkle with a few pine nuts and drizzle with some olive oil.

Quick, easy and great for a throw together dinner or a take on the go lunch.
