Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is an ancient grain, it's protein-packed, gluten free, full of vitamins and minerals. Yes, this is yet another SUPERFOOD. Quinoa cooks in 15 minutes and you can tell when it's done because the seeds show a little white thread that curls up inside, you could even say some of it looks clear. If I have time and am being a health nut – I soak my quinoa (as with all grains, soaking grains removes the phytic acid build up).

Ingredients: Serves 4

1 cup of Quinoa
2 cups of water
Goats feta
Zucchini/Squash
Capsicum
Asparagus
Salt – Himalayan Pink Salk
Coconut oil

Preparation:
Cook the amount of quinoa in double the amount of water, you can even cook it in stock if you have some available. It takes about 15 mins til it’s soft and clear.
Add the coconut oil to a fry pan til melted and then add the Zucchini, Capsicum, Asparagus mix til soft/browned(!) – you know what I mean – add the quinoa and some salt. I then add the feta, serve, eat sitting down and enjoy the flavours.

It’s simple, yet delicious and nutritious.
