BY Ceres Organics

gluten-free   

Ready in 45 minutes | Serves 4


Ingredients

1 cup Organic Quinoa, Red

2 cups water

2 Nashi pears, cored and cubed into bite sized pieces

juice of 1 lemon

5 spring onions, roughly chopped

100g feta , crumbled

½ cup Organic RAW Whole Almonds (dry roasted)

Organic Olive Oil, Extra Virgin Cold-Pressed

Method

Rinse quinoa in a fine mesh sieve, then add to a medium saucepan with water and the vegetable bouillon. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until al dente – at this point, the quinoa should have a slight crunch when you bite it, adding a nice texture to the salad. Remove from the heat and drain any remaining liquid. Allow to cool.

Toss together the quinoa, pear, lemon juice and spring onions. Top with the feta and almonds, then drizzle with olive oil.

* For a vegan option, omit the feta.
