This Mediterranean-inspired quinoa recipe was given to me by a vegan friend. The lime juice gives the quinoa a fresh flavour that is absolutely delicious.

This quinoa is lightly spiced and totally moreish. If you like your food hot, simply add more chilli powder. Serve as a delicious side-dish with any meal. It's perfect when served hot or cold.

Quinoa is a nutty seed native to South America. It can be found in most health shops. For an even more flavorful pilaf, use vegetable stock in place of the water.

This dish is not only simple to make, but it also tastes fantastic! Chicken is stirred into a mixture of quinoa, vegetables and herbs. Enjoy for lunch, dinner or as a side.

Quinoa is a great alternative to rice - it's lighter, tastes nutty and cooks in about half the time. In this recipe it's tossed with onion, garlic and fresh herbs to make a quick and easy side.

A fantastic alternative to the classic rice pudding. It not only tastes delicious, but it's also gluten-free! It's sweet, creamy and packed full of banana goodness. Enjoy as a dessert or snack.

A delicious all-in-one dish that combined chicken, veg and healthy quinoa. It could probably be done well with prawns also. You could easily try different veg, especially if you can't find garlic scapes. Garlic scapes are the green, immature stalk of the garlic bulb, with a crunchy texture similar to asparagus.
