Quinoa & Avocado Salad

Fantastic Recipes

By LivinQ8
Serves 6
 
Ingredients
  • 200g quinoa (Sultan have shelves full)
  • 500g shelled broad beans (fresh or frozen) I have seen these at Sultan Centre
  • 2 lemons (medium size)
  • 2 small ripe avocados
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 200g radishes – sliced in half
  • 50g purple basil leaves (if not the green ones) (Lulus or Sultan)
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 75ml olive oil
 
Method
  • Prepare your quinoa (if you not sure, instructions are on the back of the packet)
  • Throw beans into boiling water and once water is boiling again remove from heat and drain.  
  •  Rinse in cold water and leave them to dry.
  • Gently press each bean with your fingers to remove the skins.  Bin the skins of course.
  • Cut top and bottom off the lemons and remove the skin and white pith.  
  • Once skin is removed over a large bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the individual segments into the bowl.    
  • Squeeze the juice from the membrane into the bowl with the segments.
  • Prepare avo and slice thinly over the bowl.   Make sure you gently toss the avo with the lemon juice to prevent avo from going black.
  • Once the quinoa is dry, transfer to the bowl and add the remaining ingredients.  Pour the olive oil in at the end.
  • Gently mix together as we don’t want the avo to break.
  • Add salt and pepper to your liking
