    I treat it like cous cous. Make a big bowl and chop up lots of salad veg and a squirt of lemon. :)

    mixure of calorie counting and Rosemary Conley's less than 5% fat choice
    I use it to make Tabbouleh:


    • 500ml water
    • 175g quinoa
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 4 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 3 tomatoes, diced
    • 1 cucumber, diced
    • 2 bunches spring onions, diced
    • 2 carrots, grated
    • 60g fresh parsley, chopped
    leave it in the fridge to let the flavours mix .. it's yummy :D
