Long gone are the days when quinoa was used only by strict vegans. Today we see it back on the menu at many sought after restaurants and with a new lease of life, this humble grain is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Its star quality lies in its simplicity; it absorbs dressings wonderfully making it a fabulous ingredient to add to salads and its natural, rustic flavour thickens stews, soups and casseroles, without the need for flour. And the best thing is, it's so simple to use at home - if you've never tried it before this simple recipe is the perfect place to start.

  • 1 bag of rocket, washed

Try serving with warm pitta bread and tzatziki dip. Everyone can fill their pitta with the warm salad and drizzle over the dip. Great for picnics too.
