Quick Quinoa Meal

I’ve found this to be a quick and tasty meal to make, perfect when you’re in a bit of a rush. Its nice cold too. I’m always looking for things I can prepare while making my breakfast that I can take into work for lunch and this fits the bill perfectly. Anyway:

Bring 3/4 pint of water to the boil and add 75g of Quinoa. Simmer until the water is absorbed (normally about 15 minutes) and then add a spoon or two of spicy pesto and some mixed veg (I normally quickly heat some frozen vegetables in the microwave). Just stir and heat for another minute or two and you’re done.

If you’re watching the calories then depending on the amount of veg and pesto you use it should come out at between 300 – 350 kcal. And of course you can always make a smaller portion.
