  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 lemon juice and zest
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1/3 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup toasted sun flower seeds


  • Start by adding a splash of oil to a cooking pan/pot, add the quinoa and cook while stirring over medium/low heat until the quinoa starts to pop and smell nutty. When the quinoa turns light brown add the water or veggie stock, cover the pan or pot with a lid and let it simmer for about .... minutes. Once done fluff the quinoa with a fork and let it cool off.
  • Add the cooled quinoa to a bowl and to this add all the ingredient and mix well. Enjoy!
