Avocado, Quinoa and Radish Salad
Ready in: 15 to 30 mins
Quinoa is a great source of filling protein, making this salad a great option for veggies and vegans
Ingredients:200g quinoa, rinsed and drained
200g fine green beans, trimmed and sliced
1 garlic clove, halved
4 tbsp olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
½ tsp ground cumin
100g radish, sliced
1 ripe Hass avocado, sliced
50g salad leaves
- Put the rinsed quinoa into a saucepan and cover with plenty of cold water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Rinse and drain well.
- Meanwhile, cook the green beans in lightly salted boiling water for 3-4 minutes, until just tender. Drain and rinse with cold water to cool them quickly.
- Rub the cut surfaces of the garlic clove around the inside of a large serving bowl, then discard it (this will give a hint of garlic to the salad). Add the olive oil, lemon juice and cumin. Season with salt and pepper and whisk together.
- Tip the drained quinoa and beans into the serving bowl and add the radish, avocado and mixed salad leaves. Toss together gently, then serve immediately.
