Pumpkin seeds and flaked almonds will give you more protein. You could also include mackerel, which adds vitamin D and valuable omega-3 too.
Rinse the quinoa well and place in a
pan with about double the volume of
water. Bring to the boil, cover, reduce
the heat and gently simmer for 10 mins
or until the grain unwraps itself. Turn
off the heat and leave to cool slightly,
then drain any remaining water.
Season the quinoa, stir in the lemon
juice and oil and leave to cool fully. Stir
in the other ingredients, then serve.
