Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    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.
