I’m always looking for some healthy meal ideas. Especially with cooler days I need my breakfast to be warm and filling.

Today we’ve tried some warm quinoa salad with egg, halloumi and fresh avo and it was a hit!!!

Very nutritious meal and it kept us full for a good couple of hours. Kids loved it too!!! Not a single complaint!

Warm Quinoa Salad

(Serves 6)

100 g of quinoa

3 spring onions, chopped

1 tomato

1 fresh cucumber

3-4 fresh radishes, sliced

¼ cup pinenuts, roasted

Salt, pepper

For the dressing:

½ cup olive oil

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 garlic clove

1 tsp oregano

1 tbsp lemon juice

Salt and pepper to taste

I cooked quinoa in my Thermomix (900g water, place quinoa in simmering basket, 15 min, speed 4, 100C). But you can easily cook it in a pot.

While quinoa is cooking, roast your pinenuts on a skillet (2-3 min) on small heat.

Chop spring onion, cube cucumber and tomato and slice radishes.

Prepare your dressing by simply mixing all dressing ingredients together.

Drain cooked quinoa well and mix in a large ball with all prepared ingredients and with dressing. Toss pinenuts.

I served it with few slices of halloumi, sliced fresh avocado and a fried egg.
