The name alone makes me love this. It’s also very easy to make which makes me happy. And it tastes very, very good, husband agrees, children disagree (me not so happy!…….in my day children ate what they were given, blah blah blah).
Why it’s happy: protein from the quinoa, antioxidants from the carrots, mint and coriander, essential fatty acids from the pumpkin and sunflower seeds, and a little bit of sweetness from the sultanas.
1 tablespoon sultanas (soak in hot water for 5 mins to plump up)
3 chopped spring onions
3 grated carrots
handful coriander leaves, chopped
small handful mint leaves, chopped
handful toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds
a few tablespoons cooked quinoa/rice (optional)
dressing: 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 chopped garlic cloves (or teaspoon of the garlic in a tube). Make more dressing, if you like it more dressingy.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the dressing ingredients together and add when about to serve.
