Quinoa, Herb & Pomegranate Salad, or Posh Food to Impress Your Friends
My boyfriend's Dad stayed a few weekends ago and left some pomegranates in our kitchen which I wasn't quite sure how to use up. After a quick search online I found this recipe and embarked upon making this rather posh salad. Well, posh by my standards anyway.
1/2 vegetable stock cube
75g pine nuts
1 pomegranate, seeds removed
small handful of mint, chopped
small handful of coriander, chopped
juice of 1 lime
extra virgin olive oil
Cook the Quinoa according to packet instructions, adding the vegetable stock cube to the cooking water. While the quinoa is cooking, toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan until lightly golden. Mix the pine nuts, pomegranate seeds, herbs, lime juice and 4 tablespoons oil through the cooked and cooled quinoa.
