Lorraine Pascale's quinoa with raisins, walnuts and parsley
I’m a great lover of batch making, especially when you want to be healthy, so this recipe is easy for on the go lunches and lasts in the fridge for 2-3 days
250g quinoa50g walnuts or pine nuts (chopped)75g raisinsJuice of 1 lemon1 tsp olive oilHalf bunch of fresh parsleySalt and pepper for seasoning
Cook the quinoa according to packet instructions. NB you can also use couscous if you prefer.
Put the walnuts or pine nuts in a small frying pan. Don’t add any oil. Toast the nuts for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
Once the quinoa is cooked, drain it really well and mix it with the nuts. Add the raisins and the lemon juice.
Season to your own taste with salt and pepper
