I love Quinoa It’s my favorit grain hand down and I’m in good company: it’s been voted a super crop by the UN!
The power-packed quinoa is considered a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids, and contains almost twice the amounts of fibre of other grains, it’s gluten free and very easy to digest.
I adore the gorgeous nutty taste and I could easily just eat it on it’s own with some salt and olive oil.
My kids like their quinoa less plain and this recipe is there favorite.
The fresh mint, peas and dressing makes it  more like a dish on it’s own and I sometimes have it as a quick lunch – hot or cold it works equally well!

– 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

dressing:

– 3 tablespoons olive oil

– 1 1/2 vinegar

– 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

– 1/2 teaspoon salt

– black pepper

How to cook Quinoa:
I like mine fairly dry so this is what I do:
Rinse, bring one part quinoa one part water to boil under a lid.
Lower the temperature and let it simmer for 10 min, take it off the heat and leave for another 10 min.
Fluff it up a few times.
serve.
