This has to be one of my favourite cooked dishes. It’s a colourful medley of delicious, super health affirming foods. Not only is quinoa a rich source of protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids, it also boasts impressive levels of manganese, phosphorus and vitamin E. Add in the welcomed health benefits of essential fats from avocados and hemp oil and all round nutrition from just about everything else, then you find you have a perfect wheat-free, dairy-free meal (that works equally well as a side dish).
The quinoa is cooked, making it easy to digest, whilst all other ingredients are gently tossed in at the end, keeping their optimal nutritional value.
This dish was originally published in my first recipe book Trinity’s Conscious Kitchen.
