1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp turmeric
300g quinoa , rinsed
50g toasted flaked almonds
100g feta cheese , crumbled
handful parsley , roughly chopped
juice ½ lemon
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.
Quinoa Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa), a small South American grain with a delicate, nutty flavour, looks a little like couscous.
