  1. Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion, celery and carrots in the hot oil until tender, about 7 minutes.
  2. Add the quinoa, chicken stock, mixed herbs and sage. Bring to the boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in the chicken meat; season with salt and pepper.


Coconut oil can be purchased in speciality shops or online. Alternatively, use olive oil.

is this best eaten hot, chilled or at room temperature? - 21 Sep 2015


Changed a few things, such as used olive oil instead of coconut oil and left out the mixed herbs. It still turned out delicious! Will keep as a favourite. - 11 Mar 2014
