    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.

    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.

    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.

    This has got to be one of my favourite salads of all time. It's Mexican-inspired, hearty, packed full of protein, monosaturated fats, texture and flavour. My original recipe calls for black beans, but I've also used chickpeas in the past.

    This quinoa dish is truly delectable. Quinoa is cooked with chicken stock, soy sauce, fresh ginger and garlic, then garnished with spring onions. You can cook this on the hob or in a rice cooker. It makes the perfect side dish to any meal.

    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.
