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
100 g of quinoa
3 spring onions, chopped
1 fresh cucumber
3-4 fresh radishes, sliced
¼ cup pinenuts, roasted
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.
