img_1090

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 420g can brown lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • A large handful of roasted almonds, roughly chopped
  • A large handful of flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • A large handful of mint, roughly chopped
  • A small handful of raisins
  • 1 pomegranate, seeds removed
  • Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • Pinch of salt

METHOD

In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, lentils, carrot, almonds, parsley, mint, raisins and pomegranate seeds. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with a little olive oil and mix together well.

For the dressing, mix together the yoghurt, honey, cumin and salt in a small bowl. You can either drizzle the dressing over the salad, or serve on the side for people to help themselves.

Serves 4-6 as a side dish, or you can add meat for a more substantial salad (lamb is a winner)!
