QUINOA BUTTERNUT SALAD

Good evening beautiful souls,

I’m very excited to share one of my favourite recipes with you tonight. This dish is a perfect light delicious salad that can be eaten warm or cold, as a main or side. It’s great for a great dish for BBQ’s, garden parties or any get together really as it’s really easy to prepare and relatively quick to make too. I hope you all save this recipe, have a go at making it and let me know what you think. So without further ado let me share my favourite recipe with you:

Ingredients (for 4 ppl):

  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 2 stock cubes
  • Fresh corriander
  • 250g quinoa
  • 1 onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

First of all put your favourite tunes on and make yourself a nice drink – cause cooking is always more fun whilst sipping at a cocktail and dancing around the kitchen!

Now you’re all set, peel your butternut, scoop out the seeds and chop into small bite-size pieces and put onto a tray. Next chop up your onion and garlic in small pieces and mix with the butternut pieces. Drizzle in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper and pop in the oven to roast at 200-220 degrees Celsius (fan oven) for about 30 mins.

Next cook your quinoa, rinse first then bring 500ml of water to the boil. Add your two vegetable stock cubes before adding the quinoa and turning the heat down to simmer for about 15 mins until tender or the water is absorbed (add more water if necessary).

Next peel your pomegranate and cute up your coriander.

Once everything is cooked, mix all together (I only didn’t add the pomegranate here because my mum can’t eat it). Et voila – enjoy!!!

You can eat it warm, or pop it into the fridge and eat cold the next day – very refreshing and tasty too!

And there you have it my lovely readers, a scrumptious healthy vegan quinoa butternut salad! I hope you enjoyed this post and will try making this sometime; for now I wish you a relaxing evening and I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend.
