Quinoa Salad

2 cups quinoa
6 cups water
Handful baby spinach
Handful baby rocket
Mint, shredded (to taste)
1 Lemon, zested and juiced
1 jar of char-grilled vegetables (or grill your own), diced
4 cubes of marinated goat’s cheese
Drizzle of olive oil from goat’s cheese jar

Prepare quinoa via absorption method. I use my Thermomix, you could use a rice cooker or saucepan (bring water to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes).
In large salad bowl toss baby spinach, rocket, mint, lemon zest, char-grilled vegetables or antipasto vegetables.

Add warm or cool quinoa (I like warm as I like how it melts the goat’s cheese). Crumble in the goat’s cheese, pour on lemon juice and drizzle oil to taste and desired consistency.

Toss in bowl and serve.

Serves 8 as a side dish; 6 as a meal.
