You can pair this with noodles or rice and vegetables.  To be honest I love it all by itself.



Quinoa tabbouleh

This has now been added to being a favourite… So full of nutrients and flavour but yet so simple.  You need to give this a try.  I have had it in a corn wrap with hummus and also with a bowl of vegan chilli.


1 cup cooked quinoa

1 1/2 cup of flat leaf parsley finely chopped

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp mint finely chopped

1 1/2 tbsp chive

4 medium sized tomatoes chopped

I eye balled the olive oil as I don’t like things swimming in oil. I may have put a tbsp of olive oil

I added in avocado

options – you can add in cucumbers /avocados



Mix everything together, refrigerate and enjoy.
