Ingredients

  • ½ cup quinoa (uncooked)
  • ½ can chickpeas (drained and rinsed; 1 can = 15oz = 435g)
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 handful cilantro/coriander, fresh (1 tsp dried coriander is also fine)
  • ½ red onion
  • 3 oz low fat feta cheese (use regular if you prefer)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the quinoa in a saucepan in double the amount of water until the water has evaporated (roughly 15 minutes). Remove from heat and cover with a tea towel for 5 minutes. The quinoa will open up beautifully.
