Use a sachet of ready cooked rice or quinoa, or cook half cup of rice / quinoa with 1 cup of water and simmer for 12 minutes. Then turn off the heat and leave to absorb any liquid for 5 minutes
Meanwhile chop colourful salad veg such as:
– Radishes
– Spring onions
– Pomegranate
– Peppers (yellow or orange)
– Baby courgettes
– Cherry tomatoes
– Rocket, watercress or spinach
– Pumpkin seeds
– Herbs such as basil, parsley and chives
(You could also add chickpea, cooked peas, or avocado)
When the quinoa is cool, add chopped vegetables and mix in a small handful of pumpkin seeds. Then add a dressing made of 50% lemon juice and 50% extra virgin olive oil or mix in some Pesto
You can also add chopped meat or prawns or pulses such as butter beans
