Ingredients

  • 200 g uncooked quinoa
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves, minced
  • 50 g fresh or frozen peas
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Preparation

Put a pan with water on high heat. Add the quinoa and bring to the boil. When the water starts boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 min or until fully cooked. Let it cool until you prepare the rest of ingredients.

Bring a sauce pan with water to the boil and blanche the peas for a couple of minutes. When cooked, drain the water and add the peas to the quinoa.
