    Quinoa is a low GI supergrain and contains all the essential amino acids as well as being a good source of essential fatty acids. It's also a good source of calcium, so this is a great light lunch to take to work. (I chop the peppers up with quinoa rather than leave the peppers in halves if I'm packing them as a lunch.)

    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.

    Quinoa is a great change to rice or pasta. I've been trying to think of more dishes using quinoa and came up with this salad.

    This colourful salad combines quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes, chopped broccoli, red and yellow peppers and cucumber with a tangy lemon and coriander dressing. The salad and dressing can be made ahead and stored separately in the fridge until serving.

    A satisfying and healthy combination of quinoa, sweetcorn, black beans and red pepper. Dress with avocado oil, as suggested, or go for olive oil instead. Packed lunch perfection!

    This tabbouleh recipe is different. Instead of using bulgur like traditional tabbouleh, this recipe uses quinoa. It is a grain that is available at health shops. It looks and tastes better than bulgur. My husband and I both love this and neither of us is vegetarian. It's a great meal for a hot summer day. The longer it sits the better it tastes.

    This is a short and sweet, simple recipe. It's foolproof. But don't let that fool you – it's delicious; tasty and satisfying. You have my word. I found the recipe for the beetroot on abakersdoesnt.com and was inspired to put it with some gorgeous quinoa.
