Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa), a small South American grain with a delicate, nutty flavour, looks a little like couscous.
Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the spices,
then fry for a min or so until fragrant.
Add the quinoa, then fry for a further
min until you can hear gentle popping
sounds. Stir in 600ml boiling water, then
gently simmer for 10-15 mins until the
water has evaporated and the quinoa
grains have a white ‘halo’ around them.
Allow to cool slightly, then stir through the
other ingredients. Serve warm or cold.
