The name alone makes me love this. It’s also very easy to make which makes me happy.
Why it’s happy: protein from the quinoa and seeds; 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.

What a nice and simple recipe!
Thanks for the comment Aruna. The simplest can be the tastiest, and the ones I’m most likely to make!
Yes i agree just had it with jacket potato, i did change the dressing to one of my own favourites and used a spiroliser (if thats what they’re called) for the carrots.
