Lemon and Ginger Quinoa

Veronika Sophia Robinson

Lemon and ginger

I usually have a large bowl of cooked quinoa in the fridge just waiting to be used for a sweet or savoury dish. This meal makes a quick, tasty and nutritious lunch. Serve with salad or inside Romaine lettuce leaves.

  1. 3 cups cooked quinoa
  2. 1 carrot, julienned
  3. 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  4. 1 onion, chopped
  5. 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  6. 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  7. 2 spring onions, sliced
  8. Handful green beans, chopped
  9. 1/2 cup butternut pumpkin, chopped
  10. 1 inch ginger root, finely grated
  11. 1 organic lemon, zest finely grated
  12. 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  13. Sea salt (generous pinches)
  14. Freshly ground coarse black pepper
  15. Olive oil

  • Saute onion, garlic, spring onions and pepper in olive oil (or water).
  • Add remaining vegetables and seasonings.
  • When well mixed, add quinoa.
  • Ensure flavourings are well distributed.
  • Enjoy!
