Minted Peas & Parsley Quinoa

This was today's Lunch
I had it with the first of my home grown spinach!
Minted Peas
Peas and fresh home grown mint
  • Cook peas in boiling water
  • Shred mint and stir through- too easy but really yummy.
Parsley Quinoa
Quinoa 1/4 cup raw (quantity doubles when cooked just like rice)
1/2 cup stock
2 tsp Dried parsley
Fresh parsley/coriander (ha! my herbs have formed a yummy hybrid)
  • Cook quinoa with double the quantity of stock until the outside rings of the seed/grain are visible (quinoa will still have more bite in it that rice)
  • Stir in dried parsley and some chopped fresh parsley- use the remainder as a garnish. 
All together it took about 15 mins to make, easy and tastes great- plus not too heavy but filling. 

Give it a go- enjoy! xxx
