Submitted by: EP class recipe - The Food Chain


1 cup of quinoa.
½ vegetable stock cube.
Handful of steamed broccoli.
Seeds of 1 pomegranate.
1 red onion sliced.
Handful of roughly-chopped Brazil nuts.
2 tbsp. of olive oil.
1 teaspoon of honey.
2 tbsp. of balsamic vinegar.
Black pepper.


1) Place the quinoa in a pan to simmer, in double the quantity of water and add the vegetable stock cube (so if you’re using 1 cup of quinoa, use 2 cups water stock).

2) Simmer for about 25-30 minutes, until the quinoa has doubled in size and looks like transparent little pearls.

3) Rinse the quinoa in a sieve under some cold water and drain well.

4) Transfer the cooked quinoa to a bowl and combine with the broccoli, pomegranate seeds, red onion slices, Brazil nuts and turkey pieces (if using).

5) Make a dressing by combining a drizzle of olive oil the honey, balsamic vinegar & pepper. Then add and mix well through the salad.
